The Pictuire of the WPUM and its subsidiary hospital, which is posted on the top page now, was taken from the Kataonami Beach in Wakaura.
Wakaura is a scenic spot, about which a number of poem were composed in the ancient times.
The most famous among them is the one composed by Yamabe no Akahito.
"Wakanoura ni shio mich ikure ba Kata wo nami ashibe wo sashite tazu naki wataru."
(When the tide comes in, the waves washes the lagoons, cutting through the reeds and the Kataonami Beach resounds with cries of cranes.)
It is commonly believed that the protruding beach, know as "Kataonami" now, in the Wakaura Bay was namede after the part "kata wo nami" in this poem of Yamabe no Akahito's.
