Today, I introduce a resort area in a sore of southeastern Awaji-island.

It is Suntopia Marina and Sumoto Hot Spring mainly.

I visited here at 10:00 – 11:30 A.M. on December 20.

This aria is in the Seto Inland Sea National Park, and is sandwiched between a mountain and a seashore facing Tomoga-Island Channel.

There is the Sumoto Hot Spring immediately, and Yura port in the south end.

It is the largest resort area in Awaji-island, and has a big yacht harbor, many tennis courts, hotels, and resort apartment buildings.

Around this area, people can enjoy fishing, yacht, tennis, hot spring, and seafoods with the family.

When my children were small, I came here with my family well, too.

Upper photo: I saw the south side from the outer edge of the Suntopia marina.

The part that there aren’t islands on the distant sea is the Tomoga-island Channel.

Lower photo: I saw the north side.

The north end of Awaji-island can be seen in the distance.

The photographing is from the shore of the south side of the Suntopia marina.

Upper photo: We can see the Yura Port and the Narug-Island at the end of the shoreline.

One black thing is seen on the sea surface.


Lower photo: The black thing mentioned above was a diver diving in without diving equipment.

Probably he caught shellfishes.


Blessed with beautiful weather, I strolled in the Suntopia marina, and then had lunch in a hotel of the Sumoto Hot Spring.

It was a calm day in winter.
