Isotake Beach


Day three of my walk along the Iwami Kannon Pilgrimage, and to get from the outskirts of the village of Isotake to the harbor and main part of the village I decided to cross the main road and walk along the beach.


We have a lot of nice beaches in the Iwami area, and this one is not bad.


As is normal there was some stuff washed up. Mostly floats and bits of rope... stuff from fishing boats usually.


Isotake is named after Isotakeru, one of the sons of the great Izumo deity Susano. According to the myth Susano and Isotakeru arrived here from the Korean Peninsula, and the shrine at the harbor has more details...


Of course it wouldn't be a Japanese beach without tetrapods...
