Burning Sky and Sea in Futami, Iyo

The town where sunsets stand still

I visited the Futami Seaside Park, which is one of the 'Top 100 Sunset Viewing Spots' in Japan. This park is located in Futami town, which is a coastline area in Iyo city, in the western part of Ehime prefecture. The whole west side of Futami faces the sea, providing a great view of sunsets, which gave the town the alias, 'The town where sunsets stand still', a catchphrase local people of Futami use to promote their town. And the great scenery I saw here was true to its alias.

I and my family saw this burning red sunset together here in October, two years ago. I still remember our faces then, which were red, reflecting the color of a fiery sunset. My favorite memory!
