Itoman Uminchu Koubou
That is the name of this place. Roughly translated: The Fisherman's Art and Craft Center.
The building is stocked full with history of the Itoman fisherman's equipment.
I've been to this town 100's of times, over the past 30 years, or so.
It was the first time, I'd ever been in this building so, I went crazy with the cameras.
They let me go anywhere I wanted and photograph, everything so, that's what I did.
The sailing sabani (サバニ) boats are really, what I'm most interested in.
See the difference between those three hats ? I want to know about them, too.
Old wooden buckets, I'm not sure what they were used for. Maybe fish bait ?
They have some mean-looking shark specimens on display, too.
So, once I get all the images processes from the three cameras, I took, I'll be going back.
This place is better than a museum of natural history. It's a goldmine !
