The historic city of Shimonoseki, in Japan's far southwest, became famous as the center of fogu (puffer) fish production. During the 1800s, the area was the focus of much conflict, but found peace after the Treaty of Shimonoseki when Japan was awarded control of Taiwan and Port Arthur. One of only a few true links in the country, the course faces Kanmon Straits, so sea breezes figure into the play throughout. Although it measures only 6400 meters, the layout nevertheless offers real challenges to even accomplished players. Shimonoseki was one of the last few courses created by Osamu Ueda, having been commissioned just prior to Japan's historic 1957 victory in the Canada Cup. Visitors may experience momentary disappointment when they realize that the ocean cannot be glimpsed from the holes despite its proximity, since as usual trees have been planted along the shore to combat beach erosion.
