Tamano (Uno Port), Japan Cruise Port

Known for its industrial ship construction and metal refining, Tamano is a city located in the southern Okayama Prefecture. Home to one of the major shipbuilding yards in all of Japan, the Uno Port offers a plethora of activity for cruisers. Not too far from port is the Aeon Mall, the largest shopping center in the Chugoku/Shikoku region. With hundreds of shops, visitors can browse luxury to everyday apparel and dine at some of the finest restaurants in the area. Closer to port, the area offers up culture with various museums relating to different concepts, including art, science, and marine life. As a hub for both small and large ships between Honshu and Shikoku, tourists can catch the railroad or ferry to move freely around the region. If walking around port, travelers can observe many great pieces of art outside the traditional museum setting. These great sculptures keep the port’s atmosphere vibrant.
