Inspection Visit to the Ise-Shima National Park in Mie Prefecture

November 10, 2018

State Minister Akimoto visited some upgraded facilities at the park and learned their unique initiative for different experiential activities, such as "Ama" diving experience, sea kayaking, boat fishing, and many more. "Ama" are free-diving fisherwomen who make their living diving to retrieve seafood such as abalone and sea snails, out of the shallows without using oxygen tanks.
