One of many World Heritage sites in Wakayama Prefecture

If you love sunsets, you do not want to miss this one at Engetsu Island, Wakayama. In fact, this is so beautiful and so picturesque, that it is has been chosen as a World Heritage site. On a warm evening in late May, we got there early, walked around a bit, then scouted out the best spot to get ready for the setting of the sun. Step by step the sun went down and the sky became more and more beautiful. The colors were spectacular!
