at the Saroma Lakeside
29. Augusut.- 1. September in Hokkaido, Japan
a found plastic bottle, duster, embroidery thread
I found a plastic bottle at the Saroma lakeside which seemed like for a detergent, and written some words in Korean
slightly on the surface. I wondered the bottle had made a long journey before I got it.
* Saroma lake is separated from the Sea of Okhotsk by a 20 km-long sandbar (only 150-500m wide)
A narrow opening through the sandbar makes the lake water brackish with a normal chloride concentration
of 17 - 18%. The lake is mesotrophic, as indicated by a nomal transparency value of about 6 m, and is
known for various of aquaculture(oyster, scallop, smelt, laver, etc.).
