Funagawa Port(area:TOHOKU/AKITA)

      

Funagawa Port is located on the southern coast of the Oga Peninsula. Surrounded by a reef that blocks the waves, and protected from the northwesterly winds of the Sea of Japan by Mt. Shinzan, the port has long been used by ships waiting for favorable winds or seeking shelter. The wharf has two berths, one about a kilometer south of Oga Station for 15,000-ton cruise liners (185 m long / 10 m deep), and adjacent to it, one for 7,000-ton ships (145 m long / 8 m deep). The port offers excellent access to the various tourist attractions of Oga Peninsula, including the Oga Shinzan Folklore Museum, which replicates the New Year's Eve ritual involving Namahage, an ogre based in folklore known across Japan.
