In addition, the following is an overview of each category on this site.

(1) Introduction of traditional culture of Tanegashima

This site introduces the traditional culture of Tanegashima Island with many photos taken on the island.

The photos used in this site were taken by shige-p, the administrator of this site, and have been slightly cropped and the image quality has been greatly reduced.

The same photos may be used on other sites due to diversion from Instagram, etc., which started about 10 years ago. However, we keep full-size versions of the photos on SNS and our blog in raw format, and can prove that the images on this site are the original photos of our site manager.

Tanegashima Island is a famous place for pilgrimages to sacred anime sites

Tanegashima Island is also a sacred place for movies and anime that take place on the island.

For more information, please see this article on pilgrimages to sacred places in anime in the Traditional Culture category.

(2) Introduction to Surfing on Tanegashima Island

This site features actual surfing photos taken in Tanegashima by the administrator.

The surfing category is characterized by the fact that we aim to create a site where you can enjoy surfing just by looking at it.

The main efforts are as follows

  1. Basically, we post photos that have already been published on Instagram (basically, those that have been approved for posting on social networking sites by the person on site)
  2. We try to post more photos and make the site enjoyable just by looking at them!
  3. The photos are in gallery format, so that those who want to see them can view them in detail
  4. We introduce photos related to surfing in Tanegashima Island, regardless of pro or amateur surfers

Since this site has only been up and running for a short period of time, the power of the site itself is weak and is still in the process of being developed.

Pinterest is also part of the domain training process, so we ask for your understanding.

In the future, we will work to make it a stronger site.
