2 reviews
・Convenient pick-up and drop-off locations in Fukuoka City. Not so early departure tour for a leisurely day in Yamaguchi Prefecture by Sea of Japan! <br><br>・Have a glimpse of Yamaguchi in Japan’s Chugoku region! Akama Shrine in Shimonoseki has a long history and is regarded as power spot by the local. <br><br>・Karato Market is in particular notable for its seafood and sushi, and a can't-miss spot for sushi fans! <br><br>・Experience driving across the&#xa0;Tsunoshima Bridge and visit Motonosumi Inari Shrine which is selected as one of Japan's 31 most spectacular spots. The impressive shrine gates stand in a row and stretch over 100 meters towards the sea, attracting viewers to a fascinating torii world.

You get off bus at Mimosuso gawa stop to go to the tunnel under the sea, you would see those Samurai's statues(Yoshitsune from Genji and Tomomori from Heishi) and cannons used during the Choshu(former Yamaguchi)and the 4 western countries allies anyway.

Having walked from Mojiko JR Station and crossed the Kanmon Strait via the Kanmon undersea tunnel, by the time I came out of the tunnel entrance on the Shimonoseki side back into the strong sunlight, I was in need of some refreshment. Immediately opposite the tunnel entrance was a promenade facing the Kanmon Strait with an array of reproduction cannon and a few bronze statues. More importantly a vending machine dispensing cold drinks was able to quench my thirst before I turned my attention to reading the information boards accompanying the exhibits. I was somewhat intrigued to read that, ... "At this place in August 1864 the combined fleet of America, Britain France and Holland attacked and defeated the Choshu-han Clan, which governed this region of Japan". Sufficiently intrigued, that on return to my home country I have had to look-up why this event was a turning point in Japanese history towards the Meiji Restoration and modern Japan today. Sometimes you need to take a break to learn something new!

The park runs along the waterfront, commanding an excellent view of Kanmom Strait and Kanmom Bridge crossing over the Strait. My visit was made on a sunny day. The water was calm; sea traffic was light. The scenery is absolutely charming ! The displays inside the park include several old cannons and two statues of past Japanese heroes. Locals would have many stories to tell. It is a most pleasant stroll. It is perhaps too much to suggest it is a must for visitors to check it out, but certainly worthwhile to come along when in the neighbourhood.

Couple of statues depicting historical persons and some old cannons. A good place to relax watching the ships passing by and the changing tides which occurs 4 times per day. Across the park is the entrance to the pedestrian tunnel for walking to/from Kyushu.

Enjoy sea view with Historical sign. Some one wear traditional clothes used a story box to talk Historical story in the park. Good to take photos and relaxing walk. If go to Kanmon Tunnel for Humans, visit here, just opposite.
