Let's Go Watch Sunrise Mirage Effect

In this season, there is a chance to catch a sunrise mirage effect if you go to "Yumigahama Observation Parking" or "Miho Bay Observation Parking" at sunrise time.

The sunrise mirage effect is an optical phenomenon, in which light rays are bent to produce distorted image of the sun due to the sea water vapor. The naturally occurring phenomenon is so rare that many photographers try to catch the moment.

The effect can ben seen from the beginning of May to the end of July.

You can check the sunrise time at the following website. Please try to wake up early to catch the beautiful sunrise. (Sunrise and Sunset Calculator)
