Jogashima and Miura Peninsula

Misakiko, now a thriving tuna port (the locals call it the “City of Tuna), it boasts a fish market comparable to the likes of Tsukiji. You can stroll around their Urari Seafood Market, which sells fresh fish to the public, or eat at one of the many tuna houses or restaurants in the area (well over twenty within walking distance of the city’s main bus stop).
If tuna’s not your thing, you can visit several small temples in the area. The easiest one to access is the Kainen Shrine and its 800 year old mystic tree. You can also take a walk around the town’s main shopping districts and enjoy its amiable retro atmosphere, reminiscent of the Showa period.
