微小貝探しに燃えれます。

鳴き砂をテーマにした体験学習施設です。砂が鳴く仕組みや海の環境、琴引浜の歴史、漂着物などの展示物もあります。 いろいろと勉強になりました。

前日は間人の宿で蟹を堪能し、朝から伊根に向かう予定でしたが、鳴き砂が気になり琴引浜まで戻りました。あいにく浜の砂は湿っていて鳴かないとのことで、鳴き砂文化館を訪れました。琴引浜の鳴き砂を体験できるコーナーや日本各地や世界中の鳴き砂に関する展示も興味深かったですが、琴引浜に生息する大きさ3ミリにも満たないいろいろな微小貝を顕微鏡越しに観察できたのが驚きでもあり感激でした。館内の方に教えて頂き、スマホ...

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
