NatureShimizu Park

Present day Shimizu Park was originally established as a guard post by the Edo shogunate (1603-1868) for maritime security in 1639, and the beautiful view that can be seen here is known as the "guard post view." The "Harimakagami," a geographic guidebook from the time, describes it in this way: "The scenery visible from this place in the inlet is overwhelming, and in the mist, in the shining light of the setting sun, one can make out the keep of Himeji Castle on the opposite shore."
