Miike Port (Miike Port Observation Point)


Opened in 1908, this is the only port in Japan with a lock-gate system. This is a very beautiful sunset spot, and twice a year it's possible to see the setting sun light up a path from the end of the harbor to the lock gates. Listed as part of the World Heritage Site: "Sites of Japan's Meiji Industrial Revolution: Iron and Steel, Shipbuilding and Coal Mining".
