Misaki Port has long been a vibrant center of offshore and deep-sea fishery. In the early Showa period when fishing boats were modernized and made larger, it became one of the largest ports for landing tuna in Japan and has since developed as a town of tuna. In particular, the landing volume of bigeye tuna is among the top in Japan. The town surrounding the port has wholesalers handling tuna and local fish and specialized tuna restaurants. Enjoy rare tuna cheek meat, eyeballs, hearts and heads available only here. The sea tour ship, Nijiiro Sakana Go that leaves from Misaki Fisherina Urari, is half submerged so you can enjoy an underwater view of the beautiful sea of Misaki.
