Make the most of a rare opportunity to fully enjoy the complete charm of pearls
Mikimoto Pearl Island is the place where, for the first time in the world, pearls were successfully cultured by Kokichi Mikimoto. Now it is a theme park where you see all kinds of pearls and find out everything you want to know about them. At Kokichi Mikimoto Memorial Hall, you can learn about the life of Kokichi Mikimoto. The Pearl Museum shows how pearls are cultured and also exhibits craft items and fabulous works incorporating pearls. At Pearl Plaza you will be amazed at the form and color of the Mikimoto pearl products you can buy. A third of the island is covered with a flourishing natural forest of pines and Japanese chinquapins, some of which are more than over 200 years old. By all means, go for a pleasant walk and let your mind absorb your new knowledge of pearls.
