- World Brick Museum
This is a museum dedicated to the theme of red bricks and it is without parallel anywhere else in the world. Exhibits of bricks from Mohenjo-daro of the Indus Civilization, as well as bricks representing the world's four great streams of civilization, stand alongside bricks that are introduced using structures as models.
- Excursion boats provide tours of the port, famous for its connection with the navy
Excursion boats provide the opportunity to enjoy the fascinating sea and port scenes through tours of the port, famous for its connection with the navy and its red bricks. The contrast between the red and blue color schemes seen from the excursion boats is so beautiful it will make you want to paint a portrait of the city.
- Tanabe Castle
Maizuru flourished from the end of the sixteenth century to the end of the Edo period (17th to 19th centuries) as a castle town attached to Tanabe Castle (otherwise known as Maizuru Castle).
Modern city zones retain vestiges of this castle town as it once existed.
