Miyazu Marine Fest 2017! (Miyazu-wan Nigiwai Festa宮津湾にぎわいフェスタ2017)
Date:16th July 2017
Time: 9:00-15:00

If you would like to try sea activities(not swimming) in Japan, this is one of good oppotunity!
This event is held already 11 years and this year, it became more easy to access.

The picture above is a typical fishing style experience in this region called Jibikiami(地引き網) so in fact it is possible to try for all year round if you are dare to wake up 3 in the morning or something like that :D Although, at this event, you don't need to force you to wake up so early.

☆Jibikiami experience 10:00 and 13:00(No charge)

☆Yacht experience(45mins) 9:30/10:20//11:10/13:00/13:50 Must be over 8 years old.
(No charge,on a first-come, first-served basis. Limited number of people can experience.)

☆Discover Kunda peninsula from motorboat(20mins)
Price:800JPY(Adult), 400JPY(Under 11 years old)

And some more things are available......

Tai-Miyazu Yacht Harbor(田井宮津ヨットハーバー)
Please use the Japanese word to see on google MAP.

There is a local bus from Miyazu station although only one bus to reach there on time of the event and no bus to go back. So I recommend to go there by bicycle. About 45mins from Amanohashidate station by bike. About 30mins from Miyazu station by bike(No bikes rent out at Miyazu station). Nothing difficult, just keep stay on the coastline then you will be there :D
But from this year, there is a motorboat which run specially for this event from Miyazu pier.
Walk about 10mins from Miyazu Station to Miyazu pier(Click here for the google map.) and take the direct boat.
Fare(return): 1400JPY(Adult), 700JPY(Under 11 years old)
Departure from Miyazu pier 8:45/9:45/10:45/11:45/12:45/13:45
Please check on the spot for return timetable.
Please do not consider visiting there by car because of parking space is rarely available.
