The Mekari Area

Mojiko Retro area Nature / Scenic spots / See / Play

The Mekari Area overlooking the Kanmon Strait has numerous breathtaking viewpoints. Look down on the magnificent ocean views from the No.2 Mekari Koen Lookout, a great spot to take photos of the Kanmon Bridge. Learn about the history of the Kanmon Strait from a relief depicting the Battle of Dan-no-ura between the clans of Genji and Heike. Follow the costal path to the Norfolk Square and see how the scenery changes as you draw nearer to the sea. The Kanmon Tunnel nearby has a pedestrian tunnel where you can cross the Kanmon Strait 60 meters deep, and take a commemorative photo at the underwater Prefectural border.
