Oarai beach

Oarai is a small beach town on the east coast of Japan, just south of Hitachinaka and Mito. During the summer it fills up with surfer babes and babettes.

At the beach shack you can get something to eat and a beer: 

I had some takoyaki, which is octopus in deep fried battered balls, it's really tasty:


These guys were playing a game with a blind fold and a watermelon:


The sand looks like dirty mud, but once you get to know it it's actually the silkiest softest sand I've ever encountered:

Cutest Japanese baby ever:

People come to Oarai beach to surf, I can't wait to try it:

This surfer let me take a picture of his very nasty tattoo:
