DSC_1271

After we reach from the hotel we have time to check the nearest beach in our hotel. They said it has white sand. Yes, Indeed, it has white sand. As you all know my country (The Philippines) has a lot of beaches from white, pink and black. Better yet, I will try to post it if I have time too, because Summer is around the corner. So, that you can have an idea where to go this coming summer.

Shirahama (白浜町Shirahama-chō?) is a town in Nishimuro District, Wakayama Prefecture, Japan.

Shirahama is a resort town on the south coast of Wakayama Prefecture. Its beaches are white sand, imported from Australia.[citation needed] Shirahama is known for its hot springs. During the summer (July and August), there are fireworks every night on the beach.[citation needed]

Shirahama is about two and a half hours from Osaka by JR West‘s Ocean Arrow train service. There are daily flights from Nanki-Shirahama Airport to Tokyo’s Tokyo International Airport (Haneda).

On March 1, 2006 the town of Hikigawa, from Nishimuro District, was merged into Shirahama.[citation needed]

As of January 31, 2012, the town has an estimated population of 23,325, with 11,149 households, and a population density of 116.02 persons per km. The total area is 201.04 km.

Wow, the white sand was imported from Australia, that’s awesome.  Anyway, the hotel staff told us, when summer they are fully booked and the beach is crowded.We want to experience the kids to go on the beach and swim. They didn’t experience yet. So, if ever this is their first time. (on summer plan) Anyway, they can’t even touch the water because is waving to fast and the water is freezing cold.

Look at the pictures, they way they smile and play the water. Definitely, we have to plan a trip to the beach this coming summer. It’s also about time I need to get serious in dieting so that I can wear bathing suits with confidence.

We got the chance to see the “Engetsu Island”

Engetsu Island (円月島Engetsu-tō) is a small island off the coast of Shirahama, Wakayama Prefecture, Japan. It includes a natural arch through which seawater passes. Its official name is Takashima (高嶋), and it is approximately 35 metres (115 ft) east-to-west, 130 metres (430 ft) north-to-south, and 25 metres (82 ft) high at the tallest.

The island is largely formed of sandstone and has become less stable over time. Since July 2009, the Shirahama town government has cautioned against approaching the island because of the risk of collapse of the arch.

We will surely plan this coming summer to visit this island. There’s a lot to see, now my daughter can walk longer I think she’ll be okay on a long walk.
