Atmosphere

There is no problem with localism in the Tohoku (O-arai) area. There are a lot of places to surf with surfing and swimming beaches clearly separated.
There are three surfshops on the beach and Japan's third ranked pro surfer comes from Orai. What else can I say. It's one of the best points and rarely disappoints.
