Nishinomiya Battery香櫨園浜にある石造円筒形の砲台です。黒船の来航に備える勝海舟の建議によって、江戸幕府が慶応元年（1865年）に建造しましたが、間もなく明治維新になり、実際には使われませんでした。国指定の史跡です。 Located at Koroen Beach, this cylinder-shaped stone battery was constructed in 1865 by the Edo Government at the suggestion of Katsu Kaishu in preparation of the coming of Black Ships from Europe and America. Since the Meiji period started soon after the construction, the cannon was never used. It is designated as a historic site by the national government.
