The Beach in September

It may still be hotter than hell outside, but you won't see many bikinis at Japanese beaches after the Bon festival of the dead (Aug.15). By late summer, when the kurage (jellyfish) arrive, people keep to the sand, huddled under parasols and tents, and come September the seashore is virtually deserted. You can't help but feel lonely at this time of year.
