Tokushima-Komatsushima Port(area:SHIKOKU/TOKUSHIMA)

Autumn Winter

Located in the eastern part of Shikoku Island, the prefecture of Tokushima was called "Awa" in old times. The Tokushima-Komatsushima Port consists of several port districts along the east coast of the prefecture from Tokushima City to Komatsushima City. It has served as a major hub for maritime traffic connecting Shikoku to the Kansai area.
Today, the Akaishi district of Komatsushima City has a large, 13-meter deep quay used by wood chip and bulk cargo ships. Next to it is a 10-meter deep quay used by container ships. These make the district a distribution base for international trade.
As for cruise ships, every year in August during the Awa Odori Dance Festival, passenger ships in Japan gather, and there is a system in place by Komatsushima City and other organizations for welcoming these ships.
