Shimonoseki means Lower Barrier. Here we arrived this morning about noon, but insteado f anchoring at once we went past the harbor and around the Island Rokuren, returning to Shimonoseki at half-past one. The harbor entrance, both from the strait and from the Japan Sea, is guarded by strong forts, commanding wide views in every direction. The bay is fillled with junks, sailing vessels, and steamers, the latter coaling here for the voyage to foreign countries, as well as throuhg the Inland Sea. This is free port for both rice and coal. While anchoring a French mail steamer bound for Kobe passed us. This strait was the scene of great activity during the long war, as all the tranports started from here.Mr Halsey was living here at that time , and has pointed out all the interesting places.
