The Port is an integrated international port, handling all types of cargo (general, container, bulk etc.) We are the largest port in Japan in terms of total cargo throughput, which reached 187 million tons in 2005, and counted as one of the five major ports in Japan (Ports of Tokyo, Yokohama, Nagoya, Osaka and Kobe.)
