This was from the day I visited Yuigahama Beach! It’s in Kamakura, a seaside city just an hour away from Tokyo that’s a pretty famous tourist destination. If people aren’t visiting the dozens of shrines and temples then they’re probably sitting at the beach chilling in front of the ocean. (I was at the beach)
It was my first time spending the day at a beach in JapanAnd in the first place I’ve only ever gone a couple times even back home, so I had a lot of fun walking around in the sand and watching people jump into the sea.
I’d like to say it’s officially summer, but the weather is always changing its mind and I think it was 24℃ that day. About the temperature of a nicely air-conditioned room—perfect for the beach, because I much prefer being a little cold to sweating the whole day.
I had the hugest plate of curry rice for lunch on the beachMy friends won over ¥5000 worth of food vouchers at this restaurant in a lucky draw so we basically had a feast. I’m not sure how financially viable it is for the owners to be so generous, but it’s great for all the hungry people at the beach. Would go back again (for free food)!
Salted butter and caramel ice cream! I’m adding this to my list of favourite things—eating dessert while looking at the sea. How poetic.
I’m sorry I’ve been slow with blog updates the past few weeksBasically all my social media’s taken a backseat during finals, so I’m trying to get back into the swing of things while catching up on sleep (way too difficult to do both simultaneously).
Anyway, long story short: I need to go back to the beach again.
