About

Toba city in Mie prefecture has an island where a cultivation of cultured pearls was successfully achieved for the first time in the world. The island is now called “Mikimoto Pearl Island”. In Toba/Shima regions, there are ample jewelry shops dealing with pearls which attract foreign tourists. If you look for quality pearls, visit a shop in Mikimoto Pearl Island where you can buy jewelries of “Mikimoto” brand, or original jewelries from the island. Also in Shima city and neighboring areas, there are pearl shops selling good ones cultivated in Matoya Bay, or Ago Bay blessed with smooth and serene waters. Such shops can provide a variety of items for tourists, such as necklace, earring, brooch, ring etc. A wide selection to decorate ladies brilliantly, ranging from classical versions to designer’s jewelries, is a charm achieved only in this region, a birthplace of cultured pearls.
