Cruises To Sakaiminato

Sakaiminato is the primary fishing port for all of Western Japan, so it's no surprise that seafood is a major attraction here. Much of the country's snow crab, which is considered a foremost delicacy around the world, hails from Sakai Port. In addition to creatures of the sea, the city is filled with "spirit monsters" known as 'Yokai', bronze statues based on Japanese folklore. This artistic spirit is exemplified on Kitaro Road, where hundreds of statues from famed local artist Shigeru Mizuki line the street.
