This is a small area heading North on Hwy 6. I actually ran across it a few times before, but I decided to stop again now that I am shooting more HDR. Each photo was taken using ISO 200, with an exposure of 1/640-400 at f/3.5-4.0. Editing was done using Photomatix.
Directions – Take Hwy 58 North like you are heading to Torii Station. Turn left on Hwy 6. Follow Hwy 6 toward Cape Maeda (approximately 10-15 minute drive). The Shinran Shonan statue is located on the left shortly before you reach Maeda Point. It is a small drive entrance and can be easily missed. Look for a red hotel on the left, which I believe is AJ Hotel. If you reach the intersection to turn left toward Cape Maeda you have gone too far.
Have you ever been to the Shinran Shonan statue? Do you have any comments or additional images you would like to share? Please tell us about your experience.
