Recently, I discovered a great website about Kitamaebune. I’m not quite sure who is running the site. It has some short, strange Youtube videos in Japanese, and some very basic travel information about the different port cities that were major places connected with Kitamaebune.
The site is simply kitamae-bune.com and it is in Japanese. However, there is an english language section that can be accessed at en.kitamae-bune.com, or to simply read about Kitamaebune, just go straight to en.kitamae-bune.com/about/main/ Ω
