Travel Guide - Tai-no-Ura Bay


In the 13th century, around the time Holy Priest Nichiren was born, countless schools of sea breams, which are deep water fish, were spotted off the shore of Tai-no-Ura. There were so many fish that the villagers were left astounded. This phenomenon is known as one of the "three prophecies" that occurred at Holy Priest Nichiren's birth. The sea breams of Tai-no-Ura are thought to be sacred and continue to be carefully protected by the local residents to this day. You can catch close up views of the sea breams by taking a ride on the pleasure boats cruising around Tai-no-Ura. It takes about 30 minutes to cruise around this designated natural heritage area.

As it almost never snows in Kamogawa, southern Chiba Prefecture, it is a great choice for a winter day-trip by car.… https://t.co/MqX5WwK2Wd
