Every year in early June the company where I work joins other groups for a clean up at Miho Beach. I was happy to join in last year and posted about it here. The environmental group invited me again this year and I was glad to say yes. I couldn't see Mt. Fuji, unfortunately.
As with most Japanese events, there was a little kick off speech and welcome.
We were all given gloves, a set of pick up tongs, and a bag. I picked up a lot of plastic and styrofoam what had washed in on the waves. How sad to think how much plastic is out in the ocean.
At the end of the event, there was picture taking and a bottle of special green tea.
