Miss Veedol beach is close to Misawa. It’s kinda confusing because there is Miss Veedol beach and Miss Veedol Swimming beach, this is NOT the swimming beach. Unlike in the states you can’t just go to the beach and go swimming here due to strong rip tides, we are restricted to only swimming in swimming beaches where they have large concrete barriers to prevent you being carried away by the rip tide. It’s a nice beach to go let the kids play in the sand or look for shells. There is also a plane statue of the Miss Veedol plane. The Miss Veedol flight is a great historic story. In 1931 Clyde Pangborn and Hugh Herdon Jr. made a 5,000 mile flight across the Pacific ocean from Misawa, Japan to Wenatchee, Washington. Interestingly enough I’ve been to Wenatchee, of course way before I know about the Miss Veedol flight. There is a neat movie and book at the Air and Space Museum. There is also a tall tower there you can climb and take pictures, I’m not sure why they have towers everywhere but they make for some nice picture taking.
