Otohama live marine monitoring point, Kamihei district
One of several live monitoring points including audio, meteorological data, webcams and time lapse video, maintained by the University of Tokyo under the 'Cyberforest' programme.
We are on the NE edge of the island, overlooking a harbour with cranes and other equipment. We hear machinery, perhaps a generator, occasionally people talking, shorebirds, occasional vehicles, the lapping of the sea
Waves calmly lapping the shore, rocking left to right. Slight drizzle tapping the recorder. Occasional distant gull calls.
