Mikuriya Mikuriya

A small fishing town with an ancient history

Mikuriya is a small fishing town with a pleasant harbor, wide high street and welcoming fish market. A poster child for the area's efforts to repopulate local villages, Mikuriya has a local culture and language school that also acts as a regional base for adventure tours such as hiking and cycling.

How to Get There

The Mikuriya fishing port area is conveniently located just a short walk away from both Mikuriya and Nawa stations on the JR Sanin Main Line.

A town fit for an emperor

Mikuriya is historically significant as the location where an exiled emperor secretly returned to mainland Japan in the 14th century. Look for the engraved rock on the harbor side that is said to be where the emperor sat and took a rest.

Activities galore

In addition to a small and friendly fish market and adjoining restaurant, retro sweets stores and a guesthouse, Mikuriya is within easy access to wild plant picking spots and various farms and markets.
