  • It is a world heritage Miike, Omuta station by car 5 minutes by bicycle to about 15 minutes there. World Heritage is the port and sailed away railway carried coal mined in nearby Manda mine Miyahara wells, etc.. Due to intense tidal range of the Ariake Sea ships cargo even at low tide can be made to keep the constant water level at the gate opening and closing ceremony, are still running at low tide. When you go to the Miike port call to come free. Volunteers of port other will guide carefully. Particularly interesting is not this feature only from the air, port shape has humming bird-shaped and taught me change daily gate opening and closing time. Actual port many fishing people, I am the one who did the tourists. In addition, without a car should I rent a bicycle in Omuta station. There is also a bicycle motor support.
