Tokawa village

A small fishing village at the end of the Choshi Dentetsu Line.

Still retaining the characteristics of a small fishing community, Tokawa village was established by fishermen from Wakayama prefecture who came in search of sardines.
Walk down the steep cobbled slopes lined with traditional fishermen's houses down to the picturesque port and experience a trip back in time.

WOW!Point

Low Tiled Roofs!

Tokawa village was built on a south facing slope with houses designed to withstand the fierce sea wind.
Their tiled roofs are so low that if you spread out your arms as you walk down the narrow alleyways, you can even touch them. Be careful not to trip on the cobbles!
