In 2008, an interactive facility for tourists opened at Minato Oasis, Wajima Marine Town. In May 2010, the passenger ship terminal, the entrance of the sea, was opened. While it accepts many passenger liners, various events have been held for the visitors. You can also spend a great time at the Wajima morning market, which has last over 1000 years, and Wajima Row House Workshops in the area.
