かつて東京湾の守りを固めていた「お台場」はいまや有名なショッピングとアミューズメントの街となっています。

「お台場」とは、かつて砲台が設置されていた島々を表す言葉でした。
日本は1633年から鎖国政策をとっておりましたが、1853年、アメリカの提督ペリーがやってきたことでその平穏な眠りは破られてしまいました。

幕府はこの突然の来訪者に慌てふためき、急遽東京湾に砲台を設置し、その急に備えようとしたのです。これが「お台場」の始まりです。
いまではその面影もなく、大砲の代わりに多くのショッピングモールやアミューズメントスポットができ、いつも人々でにぎわっております。

キャッシュは海浜公園の中のとても有名な像のそばにあります。
あいにくキャッシュに書くものは入ってないので、どうかペンをお持ちください。

注意!
キャッシュコンテナの写真は次の人の楽しみのためにアップロードしないでください!
