Kushimoto Tour in Wakayama
No.21 Beach Combing & Perpetual Calendar Making


Attractiveness of this tour
Natural environment
Beach combing at the Hashigui Beach. There is plenty of drifting matter at the beach.
Beach combing is play in which participants pick up drifting matter there are interested in, caught on comb teeth as if to "comb the sandy beach". You will discover a lot including pretty shells, fragments of beautiful beach glass and earthenware, interesting fish bones, etc.
Regarding a perpetual calendar, it will be nice for you to use the material that you obtain in the beach combing, or use a material such as a magnet or black board together with driftwood, shells, sea glass, etc. prepared by us, in order to produce your unique perpetual calendar. You will receive production guidance.

What you can learn
You can learn about issues such as marine litter through beach cleanup activities.
You will also be able to breathe new life into the materials you have collected and care about by turning them into an perpetual calendar.
