The hills around here are riddled with caves, tunnels, and shrines carved into the rocks. To the North of Ubara Beach, there's an ancient, abandoned shrine if you search around a bit (be CAREFUL, the rocks are steep, slippery, and can collapse).
You can easily spend a day or two hiking around here, but I wouldn't recommend it unless you were already into that sort of thing.

It is a wonderful place to discover wild marine life up close. Many different types of fishes swim around the tower. The tower itself is in a spectacular location. The walk to the tower is, in itself, a very scenic experience. Wonderful for kids who love marine life. Although it is called the Katsuura Undersea Observatory, the closest train station is actually Ubara. Ubara is a wonderfully sleepy fishing village. We would have loved to stay there. There is a signposted little hike through the village and up to the hills. The Observatory, museum and the hike make a very fine day trip. We absolutely loved it!

Probably the nicest shrine in town, it is reached up a few different long stone staircases. Could be a bit of a hike for anyone not in good shape. At the top is a rather typical (yet still pretty) shrine, with a couple hidden ones, too.
The view of town is half the fun.
In March (?) they have a huge doll festival here, but in October the place was closed and under construction lol.

Local older people whose family work at fisheries industry sell some fresh fish and seaweed on every Sunday morning. Prices were inexpensive and really fresh, taste was rich. They were so friendly and told us how to cook these fish. They couldn't speak English, so Non-Japanese speaker would feel hard to communicate with them.

The park is located on the long peninsula protruding east of Katsuura Bay. In the cape surrounded by the sea there was the Katsuura Castle in the Edo period. The princess who lived in the castle became secondary wife of Ieyasu Tokugawa who was a Japanese national governor. Now her statue is set up in the park.

This festival began in 2001 when the city received 7000 hina dolls from Katsuura town in Tokushima prefecture. Nowadays, 30,000 hina dolls are used to decorate the city, enveloping it in a colorful atmosphere. The 60 steps at Tomisaki Jinja Shrine in Hama-Katsuura are decorated with 1500 dolls. Visitors are treated to magical scenery when the dolls are illuminated in the evening. The highlight of the festival is the 6000 dolls on display in the hall of Katsuura City Art and Cultural Exchange Center. During the festival, there is also a doll procession and a dance parade with children in costumes.
Hina Doll Festival is one of the biggest doll Festival in Katsuura there are over 5,000 dolls display around the city..
