Nestled in a sweeping bay, Onjuku is one of the best-known small towns on the Pacific coast of the B?s? peninsula. The regional industry of commercial diving for abalone and lobster started around here, though low yields have caused a downturn recently. Until the 1960's, the abalone diving was done by young women called "ama" who dove with no breathing apparatus, and bare-chested. You can see statue of an ama on the Onjuku station platform.
Onjuku is on JR's Sotob? Line. Most Wakashio and View Wakashio limited express trains from Tokyo station stop here. These trains, which depart from the underground Keiyo Line platforms, make the run to Onjuku in about 80 minutes (¥3700). All of these trains, which can be taken at no charge with the Japan Rail Pass, also stop at nearby Ohara and Katsuura stations.
Local trains from Tokyo cost only ¥1890 and take about two hours if your train connections are timed right, otherwise you may face a hefty wait and the travel time could be up to three hours.
Highway buses depart from the Yaesu side of Tokyo Station, taking the Aqua Line tunnel under Tokyo Bay, and winding through the mountains across the peninsula. Travel time is around 2 hours.
Summertime in Onjuku means enjoying the beach and surfing. Young surfers from Tokyo come out year-round, though the waves are quite tame by world standards.
There are a number of restaurants and coffee shops on the main street leading out from the train station. If you're feeling rich, pop into a sushi shop and try some lobster (????, ise-ebi) sushi or abalone (???, awabi).
During the tourism season, there are plenty of small inns and private homes with rooms to let. Many of these offer lodging only (????, sudomari), with no meals. There is a small tourism office to the left as you exit the train station.
