Uraga Magistrate’s Office
Uraga was ground zero for Japan’s opening of its ports and prospered as a shipbuilding area from the Edo period to modern times. 300 years ago, the Uraga Magistrate’s office acted as a base for sea rescue and local government procedures, as well as a frontline for defending the capital, Edo, from enemy ships.
