About Onjuku

Nestled in a sweeping bay, Onjuku is one of the best-known small towns on the Pacific coast of the Bōsō 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.
