Kotogahama is yet another of the fine beaches we have here in Iwami. Its located just before Niima. Like most of the beaches there are few people. We went there to watch an evening concert in a small cafe on the beach.
The beach is home to "singing " sand that was the inspiration of the nearby Nima Sand Museum. Actually the sand squeaks as you walk on it, but if you have heard any J-Pop then you know singing and squeaking are synonymous.
Living as we do in a narrow valley, sunrise and sunset is not something available to us, so I spent a lot of time watching the sun go down.
