Tsukiji Reflectance Furnace

 

This is the Japan’s first constructed Reflectance Furnace

 

In the late Edo period when the necessity of maritime defense increased, the Saga clan

built the Tsukiji Reflectance Furnace for making cast iron-made Western cannons

and completed in 1850.

And then, the cast iron cannon was manufactured the first time in Japan in 1851.

 

The reflectance furnace was greatly contributed for initial stage of Japan’s Industrial
