Monthly Feature Story-May 2017-Children's Day

Cultural Tip – Children’s Day

May 5th is a national holiday to celebrate the growth and good health of children. Around that day, you can see carp-shaped streamers flowing in the wind, which symbolize strength and courage. Chinese legend has it that carp become dragons when they swim up whitewater rapids.

Another way to get strength is to enjoy fresh fish at the following 2 restaurants near the sea!

1. Seafood Restaurant HAMAKURA

HAMAKURA is located right next door to Yokosuka Fish Market, offering exceptionally fresh fish. You can even enjoy breakfast at the restaurant as it opens from 8 a.m. on weekdays.
