There are many oyster rafts in the sea of Akitsu. Oysters are hung under the rafts to grow.
The sea in Akitsu forms a bay that does not have a lot of big waves, which protects the oyster rafts from being damaged. The good tidal flow also raises delicious oysters.
Loquats and oranges
Loquats and oranges are grown on Oshiba Island in the warm climate. Oshiba Island is the largest producer of loquats in the Chugoku Region.
Akitsu has a shipyard where tankers and other large ships are built. Ships are built to order. Most parts have to be made by hand, rather than by machine, so many people work at the shipyard.
