Sunrise Over the Foggy Ocean

Mystic scenery at little known place on the Tosa coast

By Masayoshi Hirose    - 1 min read

On 10th December, 2011, I came all the way to the shore of Tosa in Kochi Prefecture to capture the sunrise over the sea fog with my camera.

I often travel to take photos of the ocean, mountains, rivers, sunrise and sunset during late autumn to winter when it's freezing cold and the air is clear.

Although this place is popular with fishermen and photographers, this is not a famous tourist destination, and there is little information about it in regular travel magazines or in guide books. To me, the best way to collect information about good places is to go there, then ask the local people.

I was born in and grew up in Tokushima prefecture, and have lived in many places since then: Nishinomiya, Kyoto, Nara, Mie, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Fukuoka and Fukui. I am currently living in Yokohama City. All the places I lived, all the places I visited, I have loved dearly. The historical places where people lived, loved, suffered, and fought - places where I can still hear their heartbeats - mesmerize me. I'd like to retrace the footsteps of the people who lived in Japan a long long time ago, and introduce to you what they left behind on this soil.
