Blue Water of Suisho-hama Beach

Enjoy your summer on the crystal beach in Fukui!

Is this the Caribbean? No. Is this Philippines? No. Is this Okinawa? Not in the least. Then where in the world is this? Believe it or not, this is Suisho-hama Beach (Crystal Beach) in Fukui prefecture, which belongs to the same Hokuriku Region that is famous for its heavy snow in winter. Actually, Fukui is known as a popular diving/swimming spot in West Japan and many tourists flock to this beach in summer to enjoy its beautiful, crystal clear blue water. This video was taken in May and July by my mini-drone, which flew over the beach and captured its brilliance. The gorgeous sunset viewed from this beach can be seen in my other video.

I'm a professional photographer and videographer based in Fukui Prefecture. I'm either taking still photography of merchandise at my studio or shooting photos/videos of landscape, people, etc, out in the field upon my clients' request. At the moment, my interest lies in the video shooting using mini drone, and I'd like to share with you here the aerial videos I shot in various places in my hometown Fukui. 私は福井で写真/ビデオスタジオを経営しています。普段はスタジオで各種商品のスチール写真を撮影、もしくは顧客の要望に応じて各地へ赴き、写真・ビデオ撮影を行っています。現在マルチコプターによる空撮に凝っており、私の故郷福井で撮影した各地の空撮映像をジャパン・トラベルの読者にお届けしたいと思います。
