Maritime Self Defense Force Kitasui Pier
A must-see spot in Maizuru for history buffs, this is one of the four historic naval locations in Japan. On site at the pier, a powerful full-scale destroyer is moored. Also anchored at the pier are state-of-the-art escort vessels used by the Self-Defense Forces. Its a unique location where history and present-day overlap.
