  • History Culture

This museum opened in 1973 after the building was renovated. You can see items that fishermen used for their daily life and work. Crafts and artwork related to the sea are displayed. You can get an insight into the culture of those whose lives are tightly connected to the ocean. There are more than 600 items related to ships dating from the Meiji Period (1868 - 1912). Works exhibited throughout the year include scrolls from Wakayama Prefecture that show whaling scenes and the castaway story of Kodayu Daikokuya.
