Mikimoto Pearl Island

Mikimoto Pearl Island

Mikimoto Pearl Island is located in the Bay of Toba and can be accessed by using the bridge. It is a museum about pearls, cultivation, and Mikimoto Kokichi.

Mikimoto Pearl Island is a museum that features the history and cultivation of pearls. There is also a section dedicated to Mikimoto Kokichi, the first successful pioneer in cultivating pearls. The complex is located in the Bay of Toba and can be reached by using the bridge that connects to it. On the island there are hourly performances to see ama (sea women or female pearl divers) planting and harvesting oysters. It is a tradition that has lasted for many generations.

Mikimoto Kokichi successfully cultivated pearls in 1893 and opened his first pearl store in 1899. Ojima was the island in the bay where he cultivated his product. It was later sold in 1919 to the Teikoku Kisen Shipping Company. When it eventually returned to Mikimoto in 1929, the funds used to purchase the island went to establishing an elementary school. Mikimoto continued to develop the island as his center for pearl production. When he renamed the island to Mikimoto Pearl Island he set up a company to develop the area for tourism.
