Visit Notes

Dannoura is of course a well-known name in Japanese history, and this history is told here with various monuments, statues and explanation boards. Later the site was also that of a daiba (platforms for cannons built in the dying days of the Shogunate). A row of large, replica cannons and one smaller cannon in a gazebo stand here now. I came here as part of my walking tour of historic sites in Shimonoseki.
