To tell the truth, I didn't mean to take a photo of this nightscape because the main target was the sunset today. But as soon as I arrived at Jonanjima Seaside Park, I realized that the sunset was not available from here, or technically speaking, the southern side of the park was under construction so I couldn't go into the best place.
But this was not the only problem. I lost my smartphone. I searched inside each of my baggage, but I couldn't find it.
I asked one photographer to call my phone. He kindly let me call, but I got no answer. Well, this actually gave me a slight hope because the phone should have been turned off if it had been stolen. This is why I walked and walked around the park. But I couldn't find it. I gave up and went back to the parking lot to ride on my bicycle. Then, I noticed there was a management office next to the lot. I thought that my phone might be delivered to the office by a kind person. But the sad thing was that the office was already closed...
I gave up again and started to run. Then, I found a guard at the back of the office. He was the last person to rely on, I thought. I told him that I had lost my phone and wanted to know if any phone had been delivered to the office within an hour. He kindly unlocked the office and went inside.
It was really long. I felt as if it had been as long as going to Jogashima Island, being not sure whether the beautiful sunset was available or not. Then, the guard came out of the office and said, "Is your phone black?" I answered, "Yes..." Then he continued, "This phone was left on the grass inside the park. A man found it and delivered it to the office. You are so lucky."
It was already after the sunset, and was getting dark. He also told me that the beautiful nightscape would be available from the north of the park. This is how the photo above was created. I really think Japan is a nice and safe country.
