2010 – Iki-shi, Nagasaki-ken, Japan, Earth


Fishing boats in the Tsushima Strait.Iki, being the gorgeous, rural island it is, is well known for three commodities: rice, beef, and fish.  People come from all over Japan to enjoy Iki sushi.  Here you can see a half-dozen fishing boats, lights bright to attract squid and other denizens of the sea.  The Japanese call this a “floating city.”  To those folks who don’t realize what they’re looking at, the lights make it look like a city floating in the ocean.

In Yunamoto, one of my favorite vistas of Iki.
