“Kumihama Bay” is separated from the Sea of Japan by a narrow strip of land called Shotenkyo. The view of this calm inland sea has been designated as part of the Kyoto Prefecture Cultural Landscape.
The plankton rich waters of the bay make it an excellent spot for oyster farming. And the meaty, tender “Kumihama Oysters” are famous in the local area.
