Participants have to book at least 3 days in advance. On the day,
participants have to go to Uruma Tourism Organisation Office in the middle of the Sea Road and check in.
On sunny days, you are recommended to wear long-sleeved clothes and pants,
a hat and a pair of sunglasses. Also, prepare drinks in order not to get a heatstroke.
Now it’s time to go to the sea!
Going forward, going backward and turn,
we practiced while watching Mr Tamaki’s movements.
Gradually, my body started to figure out how it works.
Use your strong hand pull the water back, while using your weak hand to push forward.
Keep doing this with your hands and you will be able to go forward. When you want to go back,
just do the opposite. Once you remember the method of sailing,
you can go everywhere along the white beach! Let’s go everyone.
As we continued sailing, we headed to the Sea Road. With 4.7km in length,
this is said to be the longest sea road in Asia. The road connects islands like Henza Island, Miyagi Island,
Hamahiga Island, Ikei Island and others. In this sort of sea road,
it is Kayak’s specialty to look from above the sea.
“Even if I have been to everywhere in world, I still think Uruma’s is the best.
” said Mr Tamaki. He has been familiar with the sea since young as his father used to be a fisherman too.
He can play any marine sports, like diving and surfing.
“In the Sea Road, the direction of the wind is unusual in the middle of the road even on a windy day.
This makes the sea steady and therefore the perfect place for Sea Kayak. Also, in the open sea of Hamahiga Island,
you can look at the cliff from the side of the sea and it’s really touching.
Please visit Uruma’s sea and have fun in this world-famous sea!
” said Mr Tamaki, who strongly recommended the place.
