Kuroshima is a small harbour town where merchants made a fortune through trading vessels, and would showcase beautiful imported items. A walk throughout the town with a local guide will bring you back to the glorious days of the town.

  • Walking tour led by an English speaking guide and local resident
  • Visit the Kadomike museum, beautiful example of a merchant who made fortune through trading vessels


The village developed as a residential area for shipowners and sailors of the Kitamae-bune merchant vessels. The traditional houses, together with the gardens, storehouses, shrines and temple buildings, stone structures, and even trees on the site, retain the historical atmosphere of the area. In 2009, it was designated as a National Important Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings.
