Sea of clouds in the mountains

In Kozagawa Town, Wakayama Prefecture, the sea of clouds is a natural phenomenon created by the cooling of air close to the earth's surface. It can be viewed before dawn as an ultramarine expanse, and transforms into a golden glow when illuminated by the morning sun. Photography enthusiasts mow and maintain the grassy areas, with government permission, to their shots will be extra beautiful. It's a rare opportunity to see both the sea and the sea of clouds.
