Hamada Port(area:CHUGOKU/SHIMANE)

World Heritage Spring Summer Autumn

The Hamada Port is located in Hamada City, in the center of the Iwami Region, the western half of Shimane Prefecture. The Hamada Port is located midway between the Moji Port in Yamaguchi Prefecture and the Sakai Port, which sits close to the border between Tottori Prefecture and Shimane Prefecture. The Hamada Port has long been an important trading port, not only for domestic trade, but also for international trade with the Korean Peninsula.
As the Hamada Harbor is adjacent to the largest live-catch fishing harbor in Shimane, the area around the port is home to many corporations involved in the fishing industry.
The Hamada Port is easily accessible by car as it is only a 10 minute drive from the Hamada Interchange. A road directly linking the Port and the expressway will be opened by 2018.
