Tokuyama Zoo

Reviewed By Hannah M - Yamaguchi, JapanYamaguchi, Japan

The most depressing zoo I've ever visited.

This zoo is depressing. Japan does a lot of things well, but up-keeping a zoo is not one of them. If you are from the states (and probably western europe), do not go to this zoo. The smallest zoo in the states is better up kept than this one. The animals

A cultural gem, indeed, but missed out in the modern tourist map of Japan

The gardens found in this temple could win over many of the famous temple gardens in Kyoto. Why are they yet so little-known, not just to foreign visitors, but also to Japanese visitors? The answer is; “Location, location, location!” The visitor who depen

生活路線の色が濃いが・・・。

徳山駅から徒歩数分のところにある徳山港から大津島の4つの港をフェリーと高速艇で結んでいます。徳山発朝一便はごみ回収車等の公共サービスに関する車両が多く乗り込みます。徳山沖の瀬戸内海にぽっかりと浮かぶ限界集落の大津島ですが、第二次世界大戦末期に人間魚雷〝回天〟の基地や訓練施設が置かれました。月日の流れによって残るものもあれば朽ちていくものもあります。それらの遺構を訪ねるには必ず利用しなければならない航路です。瀬戸内を走る航路ゆえ揺れは少ないですが、揺れないことはありません。フェリーだと徳山港〜馬島港まで40

大分から広島行きで、2時間安楽できるコース取り

 大分から国東半島・竹田津港まで、90分、フェリーで休憩2時間、広島まで90分 走行距離は170km 約5時間。5mまで12900円。+1人2800円往復利用しました。復路割引あり。 北九州経由の高速道路では、330kmで4時間半、高速代金5500円。 ずいぶん楽に往復できます。 船は、やや古く室内やトイレも。エレベーターもないし、甲板まで車が上がれるフェリーでもないので、車いすの父を乗船させるに困ったが、事前の連絡で、往復とも職員が、背負ったり、車いすごと船室まで運んでくださったので、利用できました。

魚雷発射試験場に端を発します。

大津島馬島港の反対側にある回天訓練場跡は、昭和14(1939)年に93式酸素魚雷の発射試験場として造られたものが転用されたものです。元々酸素魚雷とは気泡航跡を残さない魚雷として日本海軍が開発したもので、連合国を恐れさせた武器のひとつとされていました。その魚雷を操縦し、敵艦に突っ込んでいくという『特攻兵器』こそが回天です。特殊潜航艇要員だった黒木博司機関大尉と仁科関男中尉が発案し、上層部に掛け合うも『必ず死ぬ』兵器は長く認められませんでした。しかし戦況の悪化とともに次第に軍令部も『特攻』を認猿を得なくなり、
