Teinai Port (inner harbor of Tei Port), completed in 1653 as Japan’s first artificially excavated port, was built by digging duneland. The masonry port is loved by local residents as historical legacy and a symbol of their hometown. Since ships frequently arrive at and leave the port, you can see a mobile bridge raised almost every hour.
