Across the Sea of Japan

I went to Niigata because I wanted to see the Sea of Japan. I had never previously been to the western part of Honshu. it was good that I went there — it was warmer and the sky was clear. Japan sea seems bluer and more rough. There was hardly anyone on the beach.

Mousan found this plastic bottle on the beach. The Korean text on the bottle read Elite”. The design of the bottle and the printing looked much simple compared to what we can find in South Korea . We speculated that it must be from North Korea. Wow!! it must have drifted from the East coast of Korea, a journey of 900 kilometers.
