More About Sakaiminato

Sakaiminato City, located at the tip of Yumigahama Peninsula, is the city whose area is about 28 square kilometers.

Since early days, Sakaiminato has grown with its fine natural port, to which the opposite Shimane Peninsula has been a protection against rough waves of Japan Sea and the monsoons.

Sakaiminato has been, since early days, prosperous with overseas trade with the countries on the other side across the sea.

The city is complete with infrastructures such as harbor, airport and railroad. As a key trade point in the era of Japan Sea Rim and a Japan's major fishery base well known for its landing of large quantity of fish, Sakaiminato is on its way to become a city of international fishery and trade.

When looked at from countries on the opposite shores, Sakaiminato City is situated almost in the middle of West Japan.

Sakaiminato Activities and Events

Sakai Daiba Park and Sakaiminato Light House
Daiba Park is the old gunnery site which was built in 1863 by the Tottori Clan. Japan was on the national isolation at that time, and the gunnery site was built for the defense against foreign ships. The San-in's oldest wooden light house, which was built in 1905, had looked over the busy traffic of ships. And it was restored by Sakaiminato City in 1991 for the symbol of history and prosperity of the city. The Park was designated in 1988 as a national historical site and it has also became famous as the flower park that has 350 cherry trees.

Sea and Life Museum
"The Waterless Aquarium" which was built after reforming an old sake brewery house is known as Japan's No.1 for its number of stuffed fishes and crabs.
