Odawara is a coastal city located in Kanagawa Prefecture, and it's known for its rich fishing culture among other things. The city is home to Odawara Fishing Port, where fishermen catch the likes of sea bream, mackerel, and sardines to sell at local markets and restaurants. The fishing port also hosts the annual Odawara Fish Festival, a family-friendly event with various ways to enjoy seafood and appreciate marine life.

There will be opportunities to buy fresh fish caught that morning, fish boning experiences, and even a tactile aquarium which is perfect for kids. If you do find yourself hungry at the event, there will be a number of local restaurants participating with various fish-based dishes available for purchase.
