Hamagoya (Fishing Tools and Beach Shed)

This hamagoya, built around the end of the Edo era to the start of the Meiji era, is the only hamagoya in Japan with a thatched roof. Along with the fishing tools, it has been designated as a national important tangible folk cultural property. Reservations are required for tours of hamagoya and to view the 1383 fishing tools in Hachinohe City Museum.
Used to store fishing tools and for actual fishing work, hamagoyas used to be a common sight on the coast. It is an important cultural property that passes on the fishing lore of the region.
