    Quaint fishing town with a charming old downtown area. Best feature are the friendly and somewhat quirky local shop owners. Worth visiting for a day trip if you ever find yourself in the vicinity.

    Including the tomonoura area in 1934, first designated as a national park area. Commemorative stamps are issued. Just seems this tomonoura port of port facility during the Edo period remain. Said Miyazaki movie one model of "Ponyo on the cliff" and, recently, also became a filming location for the TV series a Meteor wagon by the year 2015. It is a town have left a lot of smell of the Showa era.
