Fish Town Walk (A walk around a Showa fishing town)

The townscape of Nagashima, facing Nagashima Port, which boasts one of the biggest hauls in the prefecture, strongly retains the atmosphere of an old fishing town. “Kodo Uomachi Arukankai” was born from the locals’ passions to get people to experience the warmth of the fishing town while walking around the “Uomachi (fish town).” Signboards with illustrations of ocean sunfish have been installed at 62 points around the town, making it fun to walk around with a illustrated map at hand. You will feel even more of the town’s ambiance as you listen to the history and legends and folktales of the sea and rivers if you walk with the “Uomachi Guides.”
You can see the scenery of a fishing village: The morning fish market, the bridge going up and down every time a boat crosses, fish drying in the sunlight, and more.
