Sailing Sagami Bay - what a beautiful day
Sagami Bay, to the south west of Tokyo, is made up of the Izu Peninsula to the west and the Miura Peninsula to the east. It's deceptively wide and sits on top of the intersection of the Pacific, Asiatic and Philippine's tectonic plates. Indeed, the Izu Peninsula is actually on a separate element of the earth's crust from the rest of Japan. And the bay it creates is not only famous for earthquake swarms, it is also perfect for sailing.
