    Now it is just ruined, but once this place used to be the administrative center of Western Japan. It stimulates our imagination. Sakamoto Hachiman Shrine is nearby. You can also visit Kanzeonji...

    Not a very interesting place to visit. The remains that are left are not very much and not even all remains are original. In my opinion not worth visiting.

    This place is very far away fromt her est in Dafaizu.Its also very disappointing. Basically just a lawn with som flat stones on the ground. I believe the history behind it is way more interesting...
