The area was developed from a fishing net drying place so there is only a small difference between the high and low tides and it was born from using a piece of land wedged between the land and the sea. Surrounding the bay as if floating on the ocean, the 230 buildings lined up next to each other are a spectacular sight. In the past, single story buildings with straw thatched roofs were most common, but now, with changing lifestyles, almost all buildings have 2 stories. The ground floor is used for the storage of fishing gear and other items, and the 2nd floor contains the living areas and is also used for secondary activities. In July 22, 2005, it was selected as an Important Preservation Districts for Groups of Traditional Buildings.
