SUNSET

日の入(夕日)[HINOIRI(YŪHI)]

Kushiro of Hokkaido is one of the world’s three major sunset towns along with Bali in Indonesia and Manila in the Philippines. Beautiful sunset spots are found in many parts of Japan, which are visited by many couples and photographers who are eager to capture just a few minutes of special scenery. My daughter enrolled in a college in Japan a year ago. She sends me emails every now and then, but I was wondering how she was really doing. Then I received a postcard from her with a picture of a beautiful red sky at sunset. She must be having a really good time there.
