By The Sea

If you google up about towns or villages by the sea in Japan, the result is sadly about the March 11 tsunami. A sad reminder of the tragedy that we should never forget.
Fishing villages overlooking Sea of Japan
Port city of Kitakyushu, if I'm not wrong.

I can't wait to visit quaint fishing villages by the coastal area of Seto Inland Sea. A visit to a smaller island too, perhaps? ^^

  1. There are lots of great coastal villages in Japan. Some of my favourite are in Mie Prefecture such as Shima and Toba.

  2. It is a tragedy never to be forgotten but looking at the coastal parts of Japan, you can see how peaceful it looks. I love it but the sound of the sea especially at night does creep me out. So you're definitely going to Japan soon? Biler?

  7. @cocomino,
    We should not forget and we should learn from the incident. And still lend a helping hand to those still grappling to lead a normal life after the earthquake. Right?

  10. It is a tragedy that keeps on being sad for so many people.

    I never knew that there was an inland sea in Japan.

  17. @foong,
    Not these villages lah. It either located on the opposite coast or too far down south as the poor villages that got wiped out by the tsunami.

    Itll be totally heartbreaking for me if I did visit those villages and knowing they are no more. :(

    Ha! Nanti travel with little baby too. I always feel that traveling with a child helps break the ice with people. :)

  22. I agree with you. I remember you blogged about this before too but i feel the same way as you do. Kekadang when travelling as a couple you dont actually socialise more with other travellers compare to family :)
