Mixed in with all the anime shops are lots of fun arts & crafts shops, local seafood stands and funny statues lining the streets. Sakaiminato is an active fishing port, is is well known for snagging some amazing tuna (まぐろ) pronounced maguro. I... More

Obviously, if you end up in Sakaiminato, you know about Shigeru Mizuki and Gegege no Kitaro. Mizuki is a famous manga artist and Kitaro is his most enduring character. Mizuki Shigeru Road is a calvalcade of creepy creatures. Everything in this town is Yokai themed. Even the taxis have eyeball lights on their rooves. The train from Yonago is a... More
