From the Sea Of Japan To The Pacific Ocean

Miyuki Fujita, known as the Japanese Channel Queen, attempted to cross the Tsugaru Channel from the Sea of Japan to the Pacific Ocean – a course of 120 km in a fast-running current - but was pulled out only 13K from her goal due to high waves.

Fujita, shown on left being pulled out from the water, vowed to return next year to give it a try.
