Our daily life(May 2018)

Generally, in May there are many sunny days in Fukushima prefecture and it is very pleasant to spend them outdoors.
Last weekend, the visit was to Onahama Port, located in Iwaki City.
The city is one of the biggest cities in Fukushima Prefecture.
Currently, the Iwaki city and the port have returned to its original form and are again crowded with Japanese and international tourists. The city offers variety of activities, for example, you can start the city tour visiting the fish market early morning, following by the visit to the beautiful waterfront aquarium.

If you make your way to the fish market early enough, you can taste a unique and very fresh sea urchin which will be cut and served in front of you.

In addition, we recommend you to taste a traditional meal of this country “Teishoku”, which is mackerel fish, served with rice, miso soup and radish in one of many Japanese restaurants located near the port. It is very tasty.

After traditional Japanese lunch, you can enjoy a pleasant boat ride and watch or feed seagulls or you can visit the surrounding area.

 Overall, Iwaki city and Onahama Port is a nice destination for the weekend trip with plenty of activities, which adults and children will enjoy.
