Visit Notes

Located close to the Kanegasaki-daiba, the Kamomegasaki-daiba was actually built at higher elevation on the terrace of the cape of Kanegasaki overlooking the port town of Tsuruga. Due to the levelled ground on the otherwise steep hill, one can imagine the old cannon emplacement here, but there are no remains other than landscaping.

  • Natural landform used as battery, as seen from below
