ニホンイサンマークFormer Sasebo Naval District Triumph Memorial Hall (Sasebo Cultural Hall)




During World War I that broke out in 1914, Japan participated to the side of the alliance powers. In the latter half of the war, the 2nd special duty fleets were organized mainly with the war vessels of Sasebo Naval District, to protect allied powers against enemy submarines in the Mediterranean Sea. This was the unprecedented duty, but the devoted protective operations by the Japanese fleets were highly appreciated and they were conferred a decoration by the King of England.

This Triumph Memorial Hall was planned to be built in commemoration of these operations. Shujiro Suganuma, a founder of Formerly Saikai Junior High School(Current Saikai Gakuen High School), took up a post as the chairman of the construction committee. Construction costs were covered by donations by the prefectures belonging to Naval District.

The building was very decorative, and suitable for a memorial hall, used for naval events, etc.
