Miyoshi's sea of clouds, Hachigokiri (Tokushima)  Hachigokiri is the name of the sea of clouds that appears in Miyoshi along the Yoshino River. The Yoshino River is a lush river that runs at the bottom of the valley, and due to the unique shape created by being surrounded on all four sides by verdant forest, the fog rises like an ocean. It's a very rare place where you can see the sea of clouds more than 70% of the year.

鳴門海峡のうずしおは、瀬戸内海と紀伊水道の2つの海の干満差によって生じる特有の自然現象です。うずしお観潮船では、最大直径20mにも及ぶ巨大なうずしおを、しぶきが衣服に飛び散るほど間近に見ることができるダイナミックな体験です。 http://www.uzusio.com/ #Tokushima_Japan #Setouchi

I've been to a few of the temples on the pilgrimage...the ones in Naruto were the first I visited (just after arriving here) including this one:    Ryōzen-ji (霊山寺?) (lit. Vulture Peak Temple) is a Kōya-san Shingon temple in Naruto, Tokushima Prefecture, Japan. Temple 1 of the Shikoku 88 temple pilgrimage, the main image is of Shaka Nyorai.
