watazumi, originally uploaded by vibromama.

The Watazumi shrine is possibly Tsushima's best known, and the torii gates placed in the sea remind one of Miyajima in Hiroshima Prefecture. Watazumi lies near the end of a long inlet extending northward from Asou Bay; the detour proved worthwhile since in the next cove, we discovered a comfortable new campground. Generally we prefer to camp wild and free, and fancy campgrounds in Japan often charge per night what one might pay for a cheap hotel, but the Japanese only camp and sunbathe 'in season' which is approximately the middle two weeks of August. The rest of the time, camp and beach facilities are deserted and unmanned - ideal loitering points for the opportunistic kayaker.
