始めての桜島の朝日 Sunrise over Sakurajima for the first time

鹿児島に生まれていながら、僕はまだ桜島からの朝日を見たことがないんだ。まあ、”桜島からの”、じゃなくてもいいんだけど、”桜島と朝日”って感じで、要するに朝早く桜島近辺でうろうろしたんだ。東京からの友達も来てたもんで、観光だてら、おにぎり作ってお茶持ってて初挑戦。(母ちゃんありがとう、ものすげえうまかったよ、海辺でのおにぎりは) Although I was born in Kagoshima, I have yet seen the sunrise with fabulous volcanic mountain Sakurajima, and I’d give a shot (pun intended) for the first time. A friend of mine from Tokyo was in town for past two days, and we grabbed a couple of Onigiri and a thurmas full of green tea and head out to the coast line few hours before dawn. After about an hour drive, we secured our spot by the water waiting in the dark.

My buddy continued sleeping like this about five minutes until I felt bad and woke him up around 4:00am-ish. (Later he told me he had no memory of this)

Having breakfast. 朝食中

It was bit hazy due to Sakurajima’s own smoke and ashes in the sky.

Luckily the wind blowing away from us. 風が反対側の方へ吹いてた


                   No spectacular sunrise, no worry.  More things to photograph.



I will try “Fullmoon and Sakurajima” next week. 来週は満月と桜島に挑戦
