FUKIAGE Sand Festival at night in 2005 – magnificent masterpieces lighted up – (2015.5.4)

West coastline of the Satsuma Peninsula is sandy coast. This beach is called “FUKIAGE BEACH”.
Actually, the beach is one of 3 most beautiful Japanese beaches. Length of the beach is the longest in Japan.
It is very pleasant to drive along the coast.
In my childhood, I often go to the beach to get seashells.


FUKIAGE SAND FESTIVAl is held in every May at this beautiful beach. This is the most famous event in Kagoshima Prefecture.
By making use of the sand, many artists and students made wonderful sandy objects at Fukiage Town, Minami-Satsuma City, Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan.
