Mikimoto Pearl Islandミキモト真珠島
In 1893 Mikimoto Kokichi opened the first pearl raising facility here on Mikimoto Pearl Island and after the island was opened to the public in 1951 it has drawn numerous sightseers. On the island, which is approximately 23,000 square meters in size, you'll find the Mikimoto Pearl Museum with everything about pearls as well as the Mikimoto Kokichi Memorial Hall which will introduce you to the life of Mikimoto Kokichi, the Pearl King. With these and demonstrations of traditional white clad Ama pearl diver techniques you can immerse yourself in the wonder of pearls, making this almost a Pearl Theme Park.
