Kushimoto Tour in Wakayama
No.20  Let's make souvenirs from micro shells

Sudden realization! What was invisible becomes visible

【Attraction of this tour】
◆Natural environment

It's fun to play on a beach and you may not pay close attention when walking. However, if you look carefully at the beach, you will find that there are places where shell sand collects on the beach with gentle waves.

The tidal currents are mysterious, as you can see that even on the same beach, there are certain places where shells gather, such as on the right side of the beach but not on the left side.

You can find your favorite micro shells among shell sand and make your original accessories and straps. Let's enjoy the world of the microscopic.

What you can learn
You can feel the richness of Kushimoto's marine environment from the microscopic world.
