Visit Notes

Shūkōan’ura-daiba was a daiba built by Obama Domain. There is a field with embankments which was once the site of a daiba, a (cannon) battery emplacement built under the orders of the bakufu (Shogunate) in the Bakumatsu period. The field is elevated above the adjacent road, and a dock is opposite. I suppose in the Bakumatsu period this is where the shore reached to. The road is lined with trees in pairs which were quite nice. There are no ruins in particular to see, however. There is a temple to the south called Shūkōin, and so the daiba must be named for that.
