Tatado beach - Izu, Japan Beautiful small beach with white sand, which is rarely found in Kantoh area. The waves were small yet strong, it was a perfect beach for a novice surfer. I think of turtles and wonder if they still come to the shore to lay eggs.
In 1985, the hotel in Kurumba village was built with pieces of stranded coral and white sand, of course without air conditioning. The bath room has salty water shower only, the meal was coconut and tuna everyday. Yet, it was the place closest to heaven for sure.
