Trash Beach?

Well we set out today to find "Trash Beach."

We tried to imagine what it must look like to be named "Trash", although we had heard it was a nice beach.

Well, it turned out to be a really nice beach!

It happened that this was the first day of Beach Season, so we were in time to see a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.

No, it is not a brand new beach; this ceremony is to offer a prayer to the Sea-god in the hopes of having a safe swimming season.

The US Military also made an appearance with the "III MEF Band."

By the way, the real name is "Uken Beach", not Trash.

And the next time, we want to check out the caves!
