The “beach season” usually ends on September 1st around here. It does not mean that the beaches are closed, but simply that the wooden barracks hosting temporary cafes and restaurants are removed, that life guards are sent back to their universities or jobs, that beaches won’t be crowded as they use to be in July and august. But it’s still over 30 degres on the sand, with a super warm water. Thus for our family, september uses to be the best moment to fully enjoy spending a day on the beach. Morito beach, near Zushi (Kanagawa) packs many advantages. It’s only a 90mn drive from Tokyo; there is a beautiful shrine on the seaside, with a red Torii in the sea; Mount Fuji stands right in front of you, on the other side of the bay; and there is a BBQ area right on the beach… Perfect for a family day-trip !

Gear used: Fujifilm X-T2 + 90mm f/2
