Visit Notes

Kanzeyamachi-daiba was a daiba (cannon battery) used to defend the port town of Tsuruga by the Obama Domain in the Bakumatsu period. No ruins remain and the site is now that of Tsuruga City Museum; the museum appears to be a well-built municipal building of the industrial era. From Japan’s industrialisation period there are many artifacts in Tsuruga, and the town has a Meiji-Taishō period vibe to it in parts.
