A Beach on Me Doorstep

A couple of weeks ago, some friends came over from Kyoto to stay, and we went down to the local beach (it`s about a 20 minute walk from the apartment). It`s not the best beach in the world, you can`t swim and stuff, and there is a big factory in the distance, but it`s still a beach and there`s sand, and you can go paddling, so I`m not complaining! Beats London!

The weather was really good, hot and sunny, had to dig out the suntan lotion!

We were all a bit hungover, as the night before we`d been out in Kobe, doing karaoke (of course).
We went down to the earthquake memorial (part of the harbour has been left as it was after the quake to show the extent of the damage – very scary).

It was Golden Week, so they had a big car boot sale on there, and food stalls, and music, etc. Good fun.
Then off to karaoke to murder some Arctic Monkeys and Beatles songs.
