This is a start point.
I recorded quiet Harbor while waiting for a ship arrived.
This is my set for the trip.
I used ortf set for almost every spots, and wide set and omnis were used for opened beaches & opened spaces and sometimes xy to get close water movements.
With these mics fitting in one hiking zack, I can cover lots of perspectives.

This view is from the first beach on the first day.
No streets are nearby, and fewer people live on this small island, so no traffics, fewer obstructions by people.
I stayed there close to an hour to get sounds in many perspectives, but no one came across.
Oshima island is a great place for ocean recording.
Start to see many kinds of cliffs from here.
This morning was a little windy, so aggressive waves sounded like onboard ships.
Another cliff, but calm.
Another cliff, but hitting hard by waves.
Oshima Island is a small island and has an active volcano, so there are many unique cliffs made by volcanic rocks.
Because of its unique landform, waves hit hard and make a boomy sound.
Fishing harbor in Oshima island.
They just came back from early morning fishing, so industrial sounds were there.
Rocky shore from a hill.
When I was looking for recording spot with my big backpack on, one old fisherman asked me the results of the day, so I replied to him “so far so good but it was little windy this morning.” I was not fishing, but my answer was not too far from everyday fisherman’s conversation.
I often think fishing has something in common as we both try to capture something by not making human sounds. We happened to share the same places, and sometimes we race each other to get the best same spots.
One is after great sounds while the other is after fresh fish.
