Last month, I had an amazing opportunity to join a media trip to the delightful seaside town of Manazuru in Kanagawa prefecture. As part of the town’s revitalization efforts, they are experimenting with various tourism schemes to showcase the area’s charms. My group got to go out on the open ocean and fish with local commercial fisherman, eat our fresh catch for lunch, and take a walking tour of the residential hillside and nearby forest with some knowledgable local guides. It was an incredible day and a wonderful chance to view life in this part of the world.
Subsequently, I published an article all about my experience in Manazuru and why it is a fabulous destination for visitors over at Japan Forward. I’m really proud of this piece, and you can read it here. However, I took a lot of photos that day, many of which could not be included in that article, so I’d love to share them with you as a photo essay.
Stay Safe, and Happy Travels,
