Small defensive positions which were built at the end of the Pacific War called "tochkas," still remain along the coast of Asahi Beach.
In addition to tochkas along the coast, another one buried in the soil was found in September 2008, during logging operations in the town-owned forest along the coast of Asahi Beach.
The shape is octagonal, 3.5m high, 26m in circumference, and the maximum concrete thickness is 1.8 m. There are two muzzle holes, one facing north and the other facing east, with the firing line oriented horizontally. The entrance is on the south side, and the passageway immediately turns to the right after entering. The structure might be designed to stop the blast from shelling.
Many of the structures are still in existence because they were solidified with concrete. Despite erosion by waves and wind and rain, they remain as historically valuable war remains.
*The area around the tochka along Asahi Beach is a sandy beach. Please be careful when driving there.
