Fishing village harbors are in the eye of the beholder. Here are just a few things I found interesting in this treasure-trove of maritime culture, besides the salty sea air, sounds of the seagulls, and the pretty houses overlooking the marina. You won’t see any restaurants or hotels in this Tsunoshima seaport, so it’s still a real fishing village and not a resort. Rent a bike at Tsunoshima Cycle Port and explore the curvy, narrow paths, well-kept home gardens, and variety of fishing vessels in the calm of the port.
