More debris that may have come from the Japanese tsunami has been reported at Oceanside Beach. The object was discovered by a local man out for a walk on the beach Friday.
Judson Randall, says that the ornate wood carving he found may be the top of a Japanese temple gate. It appeared to be the top piece of a temple gate called a "torii", used to mark the entrance to a sacred place. The Japanese call the top piece a "kasagi". Park rangers hauled away the orange-painted piece of wood after it washed ashore Friday.
