Add to MyRoute
Translated from Japanese by

Since the early Edo Period, fishermen from Motoshiba and Kanasugi set up a market, focusing upon small fishes, along the Tokaido Road. They sold fresh fish there. The Shiba shrimp, so named after Shiba, was the source of a representative fishing industry. However, after the closing days of the Edo Period, the market went into decline. It then transformed into a nursery for edible seaweed. In the 37th year of the Showa Period (1962), the fishermen abandoned their fishing rights.
