Tomogashima, a lush green island popular for camping and hiking, is home to the remains of five gun batteries built in the Meiji era. The second gun battery, built along the coast as a fortress, and the third gun battery, the largest of its kind on the island and the only one that can be visited underground, each exude the atmosphere of that time.
You can enjoy exploring the island more deeply by using the Wakayama City Tourism App, an audio application.
