If you look at the map, you can see that wave-absorbing blocks have been sunk into the seabed near the pier in Hashirimizu, Yokosuka. It seems that this is to prevent waves from coming to the pier, which is a little offshore, as well as to the inside of the pier. This may be the reason. Some boats are floating in the soft waves, not on the pier but connected to the land by ropes.

Even though there are wave blockers, there is still a certain amount of momentum from the waves even at the edge of the surf, and boats that remain afloat are spinning around and around. The boat is busy turning the bow out to sea and the hull parallels to the land. If not securely tethered by ropes, the boat would likely be swept away somewhere far away, even without power.

While the boat was moving restlessly as if it were shaking itself, there was no sign of human presence anywhere around it. There was no one on the pier I crossed, and no one working on the beach either. As I looked out over the waves from the bridge leading to the pier, the only people who appeared as if they remembered me were people strolling along the beach, just as I was doing. It seemed that the fishermen in this area had already finished their work.
