Marine Isopod from Japan

Japanese bugs
More pictures. hopefully these aren’t too big. This creepy crawly we saw on the beach. We liked calling them “seacockroaches” but I’m assuming that they’re some sort of louse. There were tons of them, the smaller ones being browner in color, and the older larger ones were darker in color. They collected on breakwaters and seemed to like to keep away from the water.

Hi Nick,
This looks like some species of Marine Isopod to us. Isopods are Crustaceans.
