Funabiki Canal

Funabiki Canal

The one and only canal in the Oki Islands.

The 330 m long canal was built by hand in 1915, and is still used nowadays as a passage between Mita Bay and the Sea of Japan. Before the canal was built, boats had to be transported over land in order to reach the Sea of Japan. The surrounding area was thus given the name Funakoshi, which means "boat crossing." Enjoy strolling along the pathway next to the canal and wave at the boats passing by!


*Swimming in the canal is strictly prohibited.
