Outline of the Port of Shibushi

Outline

The Port of Shibushi aims at forming a southern distribution hub to serve as the core of activities between the domestic ports of Japan and the foreign ports of Asia.
  • Southern Kyushu Area behind the Port of Shibushi produces ample livestock such as cattle, pigs, poultry, etc. and serves as a major food supply base to the rest of Japan. Grain carriers and container ships from different countries enter Shibushi Port with maize, grass, rice straw and other livestock feed or raw materials. In the Seaside Industrial Park behind the wharf are companies with such large-scale grain storage facilities and compound feed manufacturing facilities.
  • Offshore from the Port of Shibushi is an international sea container route, making it an excellent location as a port for regular international container routes. Currently, four container routes running on a regular basis, 13 times per week, between Shibushi and China, Taiwan , Korea and the international feeder route, have been established. Shibushi is also connected to Osaka, Tokyo and Okinawa providing substantial ferry networks for domestic navigation.

    History

    The Port of Shibushi has been steadily developing as on international-distribution-hub port for southern Kyushu.

    • Shibushi has thrived because of the sea. During the middle ages, Shibushi, the only floodgate harbor of Shimadzu manor that opened in the Heian Period (794-1185), greatly contributed to the development of the areas of Osumi, Satsuma and Hyuga. When sea trading became active in the Edo Period (1615-1867), Shibushi flourished with both domestic and international trade. Like the song "One Thousand Houses in Shibushi", it remained a bustling port town.
    • In recent years, a development project has taken place to make Shibushi Port a distribution-hub port for the eastern region of Kagoshima Prefecture, In April 1969, it was designated as a nationally significant port.
    • The current port consists of a main port area, an outer port area and Wakahama area. Recent improvements include the reclamation project of the Wakahama area that began in 1985, which opened in April, 1987. With the improvement of the mooring facilities for large-sized vessels, many companies have launched vessel services for many different countries of the world. The location of companies with such large-scale grain storage facilities and compound feed manufacturing facilities in the Seaside Industrial Park has greatly helped Shibushi develop economically into the distribution hub for southern Kyushu.
    • In 1996, Shibushi was designated as the only Central International Port in Kyushu. In the outer port area, there are facilities such as a gantry crane, fumigation house, and refrigeration outlets. The services of C.I.Q. (Customs, Immigration and Quarantine) have also become available.
    • Since 1997, in order to meet the increasing demand for cargo handling by foreign container vessels, a new multi-purpose international terminal is currently being constructed. The proposed location for this new international terminal is in the new Wakahama area, located to the south of the current Wakahama area.
