There is no question that the sea is vital for life on Earth – it provides oxygen, regulates the climate, supports biodiversity, and sustains economies around the world through fishing, transportation, and tourism. The Odawara Minato Festival is a celebration of this, and the event allows attendees to interact with the sea in various ways.

The family-friendly festival is set to include sales of fresh fish, the opportunity to observe or take part in various fishing activities, a tactile aquarium for children, fun stage performances, and plenty more.
