Vista point on the western border of Ketaka-cho. The name, which means roughly ‘lookout point for fish’, comes from the days when old fishermen would call out from there when a large shoal of sardines approached. The point overlooks the Hamamura Beach, where the fishing boats caught scallops by hauling a heavy implement called a joren. A tanka inscription is built here featuring a fishing song or ‘shell song’. On a clear day the point offers a panorama of the Inaba and Tajima mountains all the way to the Tottori Sand Dune.
