Yoshihara Inlet is a picturesque waterfront fishing neighborhood with boats moored right outside. Fishing village since the Edo Period. Located on the north end of Isazu River (伊佐津川). "Yoshihara" means reed fields, so this area used to have reed beds on marshy land. About 20-min. walk from JR Nishi-Maizuru Station (JR Maizuru Line). Map here

The homes used to have built-in boat garages like at Ine, but they were abolished and the boats are moored right in front instead.

You can just walk along the inlet (be careful not to trip over the boat lines and ropes).
