Koshiki 甑島

On a long weekend in September, we busted out our touring kayaks, borrowed a tandem kayak Whalewatcher from WFKayaks and made the traverse to the Koshiki Islands.

  • Wonderful and breathtaking video!! Although I've been to the island several times, I do not know the island is full of such beautiful faces. Thanks.

  • hi kaz. thanks for the comment! next time you get a chance to go to koshiki, make sure you take a boat ride and enjoy the coastal scenery. Bring a mask and fins too because if you think the scenery above water is amazing, it is nothing compared to the vibrant world underwater!

  • It is after a long absence.
    An animation of Koshikijima is very good.
    Both the picture and the music(especially sansin) are good.
    I feel going together.

    The sea feels calm, but, actually, a wave will be loud.

    Because it is a wonderful picture, I ask for an animation for one's blog.

    see you

  • A gorgeous piece of film-making.
    The reverence for beautiful landscapes is well captured and conveyed.

  • As the sewing of beautiful materials features in your other blog may I propose that you combine the two interests and sew up your own kayak PFDs, kayak boat socks and kayak paddle sleeves?

    By Blogger Eastern Horizon, at 5:43 pm  

  • thank you eastern horizon for your compliments and ideas. I am currently sewing a lot of windsocks for paragliding. i would love to design a few kayak pieces too, especially designed for women who actually paddle.
