丹賀砲台 (tanga houdai)

  • history

Sad ruins of the WW2

Tanga gun battery has been built by imperial Japanese Navy in September, 1931.
However the gun battery has never been used because an accident happened in 1942. Last shell of test firing went off accidentally and killed many people.
The stronghold which is next to the gun battery has been preserved in excellent condition.
Now, there is a modern building and monument for visitors to tell how terrible accident it was and to mourn for the 16 victims of the accident and 465 victims of the war of the town.
