泊漁港 ・ Tomari Fishing Port

2015.12.01 (Tue)


The Tomari fishing port is a class 2 fishing port (a catch-all category for those with a range of use broader than just the locals but narrower than the whole of Japan) in central Tottori. Put in place as a boat guardhouse under the direct control of the feudal clans long ago, it was considered by the feudal lords to be an important unloading dock for the fishing boats. Now managed by the prefecture, Tomari’s fishing port is maintained as a permitted fishing zone and continues to be used as a hub for central Tottori’s coastal fisheries. The port’s main catches include sea bream (tai), yellowtail (hamachi), squid (ika), horse mackerel (aji).
