The port of Sakaiminato is one of the most famous fishery ports in Japan and is also the major port of the Tottori prefecture. Its two main claims to fame are anime and crabs. The Matsuba crab is caught in the region and served up as a local culinary dish. Sakaiminato is also the hometown of Japanese manga artist Shigeru Mizuki. His legacy still lives on through his creations, which can be seen around Sakaiminato's streets.
The city's landmark is the 'Yumeminato Tower' that stands in 'Yumeminato-Koen' Park. The observation room on the top floor offers a full 360-degree view, which includes stunning views of the Sea of Japan and the majestic Mt. O-yama.
