Guide to Kaiwomaru Park
The more you learn the sea,the more you like the sea.
Sailing Ship Kaiwomaru
The Kaiwomaru began as a merchant training vessel.
Since February 14th, 1930, she has sailed 1.06 million nautical miles（50 times around the world）, and raised 11,190 young sailors.
At Kaiwomaru Park, the Kaiwomaru is open to the public in its original active service form.
It is decked out in full sail 10 times a year -- Don't miss it!
Japan Sea Center
This was established to deepen understanding and knowledge of maritime culture.
With models of vessels from around the world and exhibits about oceans, ports, and ships, it is a good base for learning about the sea.
This seaside bird park was created to offer a place to interact with wild birds.
A pond, reed beds, and trees provide suitable habitats for wild birds, and with 152 species that come through the four seasons, it has indeed become a bird sanctuary.
You can enjoy nature and observe the wild birds from the observation center, cabin, or bird blinds, while listening to the explanations of the bird experts.
Bird-watching outings and lectures are also held.
The bayside is a great gathering spot with views of the Kaiwomaru, sea breezes, and green lawns.
With a large event space and nice places for barbeques, this area is bustling with families and groups.
Shouts of joy fill the air.
There is exciting play equipment and a track for racing radio-controlled cars.
For a more romantic atmosphere, we recommend the waterfront.
