Description: 絵葉書。寛永5(1638)年、鍛冶屋町の鋳物師金屋助右衛門国久によって島原の乱の原城攻撃のために鋳造されたと伝えられている。以来実戦で使われることなく大波止に据えられてきた。現在フェリー発着所の近くの緑地に置かれている。「玉はあれども大砲なし」として長崎の七不思議のひとつ。 / Picture postcard. It is said that this cannonball was cast in 1638 by Kanaya Suke'emon Kunihisa, founder of Kajiya-machi, for use against Hara Castle during the Shimabara Rebellion. As it turned out it never left Nagasaki and was placed at Ohato. Preserved at present in a small park near the ferry terminal, it is called one of the seven wonders of Nagasaki: "There is a cannonball, but no cannon."
