Established in 2007, UNOPORT13 is a volunteer community made up of 13 executive and professional women working together to promote UNO Port and Tamano City. Led by Sadako Miyake the group includes business women, artists, public employees and a university professor. As a result of the recent influx of visitors to Uno, Naoshima, Benesse House and Chichu Art Museum, UNOPORT13 made this map to introduce foreign visitors to some of the local historic sites and legends of Uno.

When the Ukou Railway Ferry between Honshu and Shikoku was opened in 1910,the name of Uno Port became one of the most important ferry terminals in japan.
With the opening of the Seto Ohashi in 1988, Ukou Tailway Ferry service was ended.
Only the remains of the second berth are left now at Uno Port.
