Bow-shaped dike at Karekinada coast viewed from Hanchiku

On the Nagai-zaka Slope, there is a Kodo trail called “Hanchiku” (rammed earth). It is considered that this trail was developed with an embankment to form a hilly land as a drainage divide and maintained on the same level in order to prevent the landslide due to rain. From the trail, visitors can overlook a part of the bow-shaped dike called “Takahama Senjojiki”.
