Former Hanada Fishers Residence (designated as an important cultural asset by the national government)
The herring fisherman’s residence built around 1905 is one of the largest of its kind that still remains. More than 200 herring fishermen were hired in those days. It is Japan’s northernmost important cultural asset.
