Reviewed:2015/11/30 Traditional fishing by female divers (ama) can be seen there!
KUJI is the northern limit for traditional fishing by ama, Japnaese female divers. You can see them fishing there, and also enjoy view of the dynamic ria coast. Of course fresh seafood is available...
Reviewed:2014/01/25 Uni Tabetai!
While being the site of a recent NHK drama, the real treat is the fresh uni. Its worth every ichi-en! They open it right there for you and its in your hands in mere seconds.

Be advised to get...
Reviewed:2019/11/28 「あまちゃん」のロケスポット
小袖漁港の横にあり、あまちゃんで有名になった3階建ての建物で、1階が案内所とお土産売り場、2階が海女の展示、3階が休憩所となっています。
周囲には袖ヶ浜漁協や灯台など「あまちゃん」のロケスポットもあり、センター前で海女の実演が行われますが、7月から9月の土日のみです。

          A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region's delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you'll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
