Nirayama Reverberatory Furnace

韮山反射炉

A National Historic Site located in Izunokuni City, Shizuoka Prefecture. In the closing days of the Tokugawa shogunate government, Japan was exposed to the threat of ships from Europe and America. This reverberatory furnace was created in order to build cannons to repel that threat. Completed in 1857, the Nirayama Reverberatory Furnace still stands today. The only reverberatory furnace in Japan today, it is also a registered World Heritage site. Built of fire-resistant fire brick, the furnace, including the body and chimney together, is 15.7 meters tall. Visitors can view the furnace with the payment of a small entrance fee. The furnace’s 20 minute free guided tours are also popular (advance reservation recommended).
