Location_shimonosekiport

 

 

The Shimonoseki Port faces the Kanmon Straits and is located on the westernmost end of Honshu Island. Since times of old, it has served as a gateway to the mainland. Its selling points include its history as a strait city and the food (globefish, sea urchin, whale, angler, etc.) it has to offer, while the beautiful scenery of the Kanmon Straits has a soothing effect on all who visit.

The Arcaport area has a quay for passenger ships, and nearby there is an aquarium, the Karato Market and an amusement facility that includes a Ferris Wheel. Being able to enjoy sightseeing, gourmet food and shopping while walking around these facilities and gazing out at the Kanmon Straits is another thing that draws people to the Shimonoseki Port.

Castle Town Chofu

Chofu town

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to Nihon-shoki, the oldest chronicle of Japan, this town became known as Chofu because it was the site of the Nagato-no-kuni (Choshu) and Kokufu domains. In the Edo Period, it prospered as a castle town of 50,000 koku of rice under the Chofu Mori clan, and during the last days of the shogunate, it became the stage for the revolution that became the Meiji Restoration. Walk along historical streets with names from ages past such as Furue-koji, Yokomakura-koji, and Dangukawa, and enjoy the slow passage of time and the rustling of leaves. The surrounding area includes Kozan-ji Temple (a designated National Treasure), Chofu Museum, and the Mori Residence, as well as many fashionable cafés.
