Home Japan Kyoto Off-the-beaten Kyoto...

Overview

Ine town is a completely different world from the other part of Japan. 230 Funaya (boat houses) are lined along the 5km coast of Ine bay. I was living there for two years. We can visit some boat houses and take a fishing boat and cruise around the bay. I recommend to stay at least one night in the village. On the day 2, we can visit fish market in the morning.

  •   Stay at a boat house in Ine town, seaside Kyoto

What to Expect

2.5 hours train journey from Kyoto station to Miyazu station, and then take a bus to Ine town, a fishing village.

Funaya (fishing boat house) was once used as storehouses of fishermen's boats, and now it is used as their residence on the second floor, containing boats on the first floor. Villagers catch fishes, shells, and sea weeds from entrance hall. We can stay at one of the funaya, and experience traditional fishing village livelihood, most closest to the sea.

While I was engaged in community-based tourism project in Ine village, I was working with boat house inns, fishermen, farmers, and chefs to develop unique experience programs. You can go for fishing with a fisherman, help farming, and taste umi no shojin-ryori (literary means seafoods for vegetarian, unique cuisine in the seaside area), also learn seafood cooking from locals.
