There are two good reasons for a cruise to Sakaiminato. The first is: the Matsuba crab is fished, prepared and served here; a delicious local speciality. The second is related to the pop art of Shigeru Mizuki, the legendary creator of manga, whose legacy lives on in his creations that adorn the streets of Sakaiminato and the museum dedicated to him. The attractions of the city also include shore excursions to Sakai Dabai Park and visits to the wooden lighthouse, the oldest in the region.
Not to be missed:
Eshima Ohashi Bridge and Lake Nakaumi
The centuries-old Matsue Castle, built entirely of wood
Shigeru Mizuki Museum
