Composite material type joined at the bottom of the shape (Nationally designated "Maruta" is a single-frame construction).

Similar to the country-designated Maruta, it was once used for fishing in the sea of Ofunato Bay (the collection of abalone, wakame, and nori etc.) and is the only composite ship remaining on Japan's Pacific coast.
Because the ship is heavy, it is difficult to be swept away by the wind and it is stable, so it is said to be ideal for collecting abalone, and until the end of the Taisho period, it was said that a considerable number of used vessels in the bay had been "marled."
The producer is Shimizu Seiyamon.
At the time of designation, it was owned by Mr. Shida Kaneemon, Akasaki Town, but was later donated to Ofunato City, and is now stored at the Ofunato City Museum.
