Shirahama and other beach around Osaka.

Last month, I took a trip to Nanki Shirahama.
Nanki Shirahama is in Wakayama prefecture, next to Osaka.

There’s nice, relaxing atmosphere and the sea foods are so yummy!
Shirarahama beach is surrounded with white sands,
which is not large but very beautiful!


Other than the beach, there are lots to see.
One of my favorite was Sandan-jiki and its cave. Such a mysterious place.
