Shimonoseki, located at the extreme tip of Honshu, is separated by a narrow strait from the island of Kyushu. Its historic naval battles, both factual and legendary, are celebrated with annual festivals. Today, Shimonoseki is hotly pursuing its goal of becoming an international convention city. In 1996, the Kaikyo Messe, a large convention center with high-tech facilities, was opened. This complex, comprised of a 500-foot-high observation tower, an exhibition hall and an international conference facility, is the perfect venue to attract the desired international attention.
