Kuroshima Island at night(Yoru no Kuroshima)


Gassho waves clashing in the darkness

Kuroshima Island, which can be seen from Lover’s Cape located in Kuchiwabuka, Susami Town, is well-known for its Gassho waves, which are waves running around the island from right and left, clashing against each other. In contrast with daytime scenery, which is beautiful with the contrast between blue sea and white waves, Kuroshima Island illuminated by moonlight has an atmosphere like an ink painting.
