Shiroyama Historical Park is a garden overlooking the Seto Inland Sea, built on the site of Kaminoseki Castle.
In the late 16th century, the castle played an important role as a base for controlling the western end of the Seto Inland Sea, but it was abandoned in 1588 when Toyotomi Hideyoshi forbade pirates from controlling the sea. The castle is believed to have been abandoned in 1588 when Hideyoshi Toyotomi declared a ban on pirates.
Later, in 1998, an excavation survey was conducted and the remains of a foundation stone building, iron sickles, and roof tiles were found. The park is now home to about 180 early-flowering Kawazu cherry trees and about 3,000 daffodils. This place is quite crowded with visitors in spring.
