Visit Notes

Hachimanshita-daiba is a (former) battery emplacement site in Obama. The site is now a small park. It is located along the shore, now known as Ningyōnohama ('Mermaid Beach'), where there are statues of European-style mermaids (traditional Japanese 'people-fish' look very different). No ruins remain of the daiba.
