Caught this shot on my iPhone on my evening jog around the island yesterday.
Welcome to spring on Shiraishi Island! It has finally come, after lots of cold weather and rain. We are starting to see sunsets again and sunny days.
Umibiraki (the opening of the sea ceremony) is July 1 this year. We are already getting in lots of reservations for the summer, so don't wait too long if you're planning on visiting Shiraishi in the near future. Rooms on the island are limited, and they tend to fill up fast. Here is the current update on accommodations.
International Villa is fully booked May 26, June 2, 9, 14, July 5, 6, 7, 21, 22, 23, 24, 28, 31, August 1-6, 10, 12-15.
All minshukus and ryokans on the island are fully booked May 23-25, May 30, June 1, 7, 13, 15, July 4, 5
Please note that The Cottage is no longer available for rent (sniffles).
