The photo above was taken by Fumi on June 12th.
The Tokyo 2020 Games surfing program is going to make a debut on the beach. The competitions are going to be held in four days between July 25th and Aug. 1st.
You'll be surprised with a stone torii ahead of you on the beach. A torii marks the entrance to a sacred area. In the Japanese myth a goddess Tamayorihimenomikoto(玉依姫命)enshrined in Tamasaki Shrine meets another gods in this area once a year. You'll find this area is very sacred.
This is the photo taken by Fumi on June 12th. You can see the facilities on the beach.
You'll take a JR (Japan Railways) rapid train from Narita Airport to JR Chiba Station (40 minutes), change to Sotobosen, get off at Kazusa-Ichinomiya station(45 minutes), and take a shuttle bus.
