Islands of Shiogama
Most of these were taken on the
island of Sabasawa, famous for its hellish winds and
poisonous snake population. In the summer, people flock here to hang out
on the beaches,
and get bitten. In the Edo period, this was the major port for this region
first iron ship was built here. Residents still find
Jomon artifacts on the beaches of these islands. Sabasawa is next to
Nonoshima, where my junior high is located.
Katsurashima is across from
Nonoshima on the other side.
