Minato-ku, Tokyo Pref.MAP

Immediately after the first arrival and departure of the US Navy near Edo in 1853, the Tokugawa Shogunate decided to construct 11 fortifications in the sea to counter their next arrival. When the Navy came back eight months later, three of them were nearly completed. Now two of them are preserved and one (Daiba No.3) is open to the public as Daiba Park after it was connected to the artificial island Odaiba, which was named after these old fortresses, constructed after WWII. The other one (Daiba No.6)pin remains isolated in the sea. You can also look down at these two from the sidewalk along the Rainbow Bridge.
