Misaki Fish Market, paradise of tuna

The city of Misaki is famous in the Kanto region for its high quality tuna. Dozens of restaurants in the city specialize in seafood and most of them participate in the Maguro train ticket deal. Some of the catches the fishermen bring back to the city are sold at the Misaki fish market. The tuna and seafood products offered there are very diverse. Should you visit on a warm day, don’t miss out the ice cream!

Jogashima Ferry

The Keikyu Misaki Maguro Pass includes the train pass from Tokyo, a meal in Misaki and a leisure activity. A visit to the onsen, renting a bicycle and purchasing crafts are some of the activities included. We elected to use our pass for a ferry ride connecting the port of Misaki to the island of Jogashima. The ferry ride only lasts several minutes, but is definitely a more pleasant way of heading to Jogashima compared to taking the bus or walking on the bridge linking Misaki and Jogashima.

West Jogashima

On the western side of Jogashima island is located a beautiful white lighthouse. Designed by a French engineer, it is one of the oldest of western style in Japan. Sadly, the original was damaged during the great Kanto earthquake but was rebuilt in its present form. This side of the island also features a small market street where several restaurants and gift shops are located. The main attraction of Jogashima is without a doubt its beautiful coast. The many visitors who walk or fish on this side of the island are always under the eagle’s watchful eyes.
