Hashizu Fort Ruins 橋津台場跡

2014.04.14 (Mon)

Hashizu fort

This is the last fort left of eight built by the Tottori clan at the end of the Edo period, when tensions were rising with many foreign countries. Although the remains have been eroded by waves, it is thought that the fort had a hexagonal shape. It was designated a historical landmark in 1988, and is now part of Hawai-Togo Seaside Park.

江戸時代末期、諸外国との緊張が高まった時に鳥取藩が築いた8カ所の台場の一つ。現在は波浪で前方部が浸食されていますが、元々は六角形をしていたものと考えられます。1988(昭和63)年に国の史跡に指定され、現在は、東郷湖羽合臨海公園の一部として、憩いの場となっています。
