Japanese Tombs

Scattered around the area

What we say: 2.5 stars

There isn't much here except for an overgrown tomb with an inscription, but it's a fine spot to visit in conjunction with a walking or cycling tour.

The tombs (there are three of them) are located in the rice fields at signposted intervals along Hai Ba Trung Street, 1.5 kilometre north of the intersection with Nguyen Tat Thanh (the name of the road changes to Ly Thuong Kiet on the west side of Hai Ba Trung).

Coming from Hoi An you will spot the yellow concrete signs marking the turn-off into the fields to the right. The tombs are of Japanese traders Banjiro, Gu Sokukun and Tani Yairobei.

From the other direction the signs are a little harder to spot, but if you get to the end of the open fields and start passing buildings, you've gone too far.
