Utazu-Umihotaru Reconstructed Salt Field and Vat Shedうたづ海ホタル 復元塩田&釜屋

Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

This is a reconstruction of the kind of naturally-flooded saltpans developed in the early Edo period for making salt. It adjoins the Utazu-Umihotaru museum, which presents the history and culture of salt making in Utazu. Very few such working reconstructed saltpans exist in the country, and many area elementary and junior high schools make field trips to it. With a reservation made at least 10 days in advance, families and groups can also try making salt using the facility (note that salt making activities may be cancelled due to weather).

Review of Utazurinkai Park

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2017/12/10 Pretty sea-side park ...
It is a beautiful park by the Seto Inland Sea, with a spectacular bridge in the background. Good for a relaxing walk, with a playground and cafe within it.
Reviewed:2017/10/16 A free place to go
It took about 30 minutes of walking from the Utazu train station. In fact, it was a free place to have relax where could have a great view to see the seashore.
Reviewed:2019/09/29 入り浜式塩田
ドライブの途中で立ち寄りました。入り浜式塩田の復元施設があり、こういうのは初めて見たので興味深かったです。隣に水族館設備を建築していたので、これが完成したら、それなりの公園になるのでしょうか。

          Japan's smallest prefecture, Kagawa, may take up just a small corner of Shikoku, but it has grown increasingly popular with the recognition of Naoshima, its "art island" in the Seto Inland Sea between Shikoku and Honshu. Just a stone's throw from the islands, mainland Kagawa's prefectural capital, Takamatsu, holds history in its castle ruins and its pride and joy, Ritsurin Garden, is known as one of the country's best gardens.
