Awashima Maritime Museum
Japan’s first maritime school was founded in 1897 on Awashima Island.Alumni of this school embarked on careers that took them all across the ocean. After the school was closed in 1987, the building was preserved and remains to this day. The current museum was the school building, originally built in 1920 and houses many artifacts and models related to maritime studies. Look around the grounds to see a historic anchor and bell. The maritime school was the setting of the popular animated movie, Kikansha Sensei.
