Photo Journal: Gorgeous voyage

(Mainichi/Hiroki Abe)

The yacht "A" is seen anchored at the port of Miyazu facing the Sea of Japan in the western Japan prefecture of Kyoto on Oct. 1, 2018. The motorized yacht, which cost some 36 billion yen, was ordered by a Russian billionaire as a gift for his wife. The 119-meter, 5,959-ton vessel with the billionaire and his family aboard apparently put in at Miyazu to avoid Typhoon Trami, and is scheduled to depart on Oct. 3. That gives the family a little time to enjoy the port's natural beauty including the Amanohashidate sandbar, known as one of Japan's three best scenic views.
