Coming to Enoshima, there were more people on the beach than I had expected. This year was probably the most crowded in years, if not the same as before the Covid-19 pandemic. Looking around the beach, there were a moderate number of bathers scattered about. It was crowded enough that I would have preferred this kind of crowd if I were coming here. But I did not come here for swimming. I came here to explore Enoshima Island, so I had no use for the beach. I was just looking at Katase Higashihama Beach with a sideways glance, silently heading for Enoshima.

As I walked along the beach, I noticed something. Some people were just laying out rugs on the beach, but many were pitching tents. Certainly, a tent would provide shelter from the sun on a beach with no shade, and it would also be convenient for changing clothes. However, I did not have a plan in my mind to go to the beach with a tent for swimming. I heard that this kind of tent is called a beach tent. It seems that gadgets and convenient goods are evolving year by year, even for swimming in the sea, which is enjoyed in a near-naked state.
