Shonan Beach In Winter

There’s something just very relaxing about coastlines and sunrises or sunsets, even as Winter moves in. After almost 5 years of living near the Japan’s Shonan Pacific coast, I just don’t seem to get bored of cycling down here, walking around and taking some pictures (yes, almost the same picture) again and again. I’m not alone either, year round people are cycling the beach track, surfing a little, even playing beach volleyball, and I just don’t think it gets any more relaxed than this.

Unlike the Summers which are busy with tourists, the Winter tends to just be local people and those dedicated outdoors people looking to get some time in on the waves for surfing, wind-surfing or other outdoors activities, even if that’s just walking off breakfast lunch or dinner at one of the local places to eat. Good times.
