Following the success of last years exhibition of sand sculptures on the beach in front of Aquas it has been done again though this time under cover and in the grounds of Aquas itself. There was a big one of Kakinomoto Hitomaro and his wife Yosami. Surrounded by penguins and Beluga whales, the main attractions at Aquas.
It was nice to see a representation of them that did not descend to "kawaii" manga style.
The other big tableau was of Susano and Yamata no Orochi
There were several smaller sculptures done by teams from local companies. My favorite was this hanya mask.
