The site of Nishikinomihata plant was the place where the flag called “Nishikinomihata,” raised at the front line of the new government army, was produced.
The “Nishikinohata” flag was raised at the front line of the new government army organized mainly by the Choshu and Satsuma at the Battle of Toba–Fushimi during the Boshin War. The flag, which gave such a shock to the former Shogunate forces, was produced in this place near the former Domain headquarters. Now there is a stone monument and an information board indicating the site.
