Typhoon 10 weather update, Shiraishi Island

All ferries to Shiraishi Island have stopped on account of Typhoon 10, which is scheduled to pass through this area early Thursday afternoon. The Shiraishi Bon dance has been cancelled for Wednesday and Thursday, but no decision has been made yet for the last performance on Friday. Much depends on whether the ferries are up and running and the condition of the beach (where the performance is scheduled to take place).

We'll update the blog as soon as we hear anything. Until then, you can presume the ferries are not running.

Thank you for your patience.

Sea Day is approaching--get out to the beach! #japan #setonaikai #beach

Shiraishi Beach in 1955.

After quite a wet rainy season, it looks like the weather is clearing and that we'll have a great Sea Day weekend, July 13-15 (Monday is the national holiday). The Moooo! Bar is looking forward to another great summer on the beach and we hope to see you there!

If you'd like to read up on the island, here are a couple articles I wrote recently for the Japan Times about our island residents. You can visit the places mentioned in the articles when you come out to Shiraishi this summer!
