Nori Cultivation in Tokyo Bay(富津岬沖の海苔養殖場とアマモ場)

Before landing at Tokyo Haneda airport, airplane sometimes passes through over Chiba Prefecture, near Tokyo. So, especially in Winter season, I always reserve a window seat of the right side to see Nori (Porphyra / Pyropia) cultivation that is conducted at off the coast of Chiba Prefecture in Tokyo Bay. However, if you want to see the beautiful Mt Fuji, I recommend the left side seat.

この時期,天気のよい日に東京出張すると富士山がよく見えます。ほとんどの人はそちらを眺めますが,私は右側の座席を指定し,海苔養殖場を眺めます。

Nori cultivation filed at off Futtsu Cape. I could find the numerous rectangle nets on the sea.
