Hakodate Bay Area 3 !

by Kazu

Can you see the top of Mt. Hakodate on the photo above ?
The base for artillery was on top of the mountain. There are underground warehouse that was used to stock the gunpowder and cannonballs.
I am not sure the length the cannonballs could reach from the top of the mountain but it is apparent that the cannons were for attacking the battleships off shore of thebay city.
I am not sure if the cannonballs from the peak actually wrecked any ships or not but the natural fort still exist.  It required high degrees of skills to hit the ships from the mountain, I think.
