“I was in and out of the water until sunset, not getting home until dusk,” Shindo recalled. “I walked (to the beach) at a very brisk clip every morning, but my pace was much slower going home, taking me twice as long as in the morning … . The seas were my childhood itself.” This must have been around the end of the Taisho Period (1912-1926).

The last thing we want is for future generations to reminisce one day, “The ocean was dead when we were children.”
