Jimo is a county-level city in Shandong province, China, located north of Qingdao.LocationJimo is located in the southwest of the Shandong Peninsula, bordered by the Yellow Sea on the east and Mount Lao on the south.ClimateJimo has a moderate monsoon climate. The yearly average temperature is about 12°C, and average annual precipitation is 708mm.HistoryJimo was established in the Eastern Zhou Dynasty, at which time it was the second largest settlement in Shandong. The Siege of Jimo in 279 BC, otherwise unremarkable, is remembered for the ruse that ended it. Tian Dan was a general of the State of Qi who had just lost 70 cities to the Yan. When Jimo, their penultimate city, was under fire, he collected more than 1,000 oxen, tied sharp daggers to their ears, tied straw to their tails, and dressed them in colourful cloth to make them look like dragons. At dead of night the Qi set the tails alight and drove the oxen towards the enemy camp. The panicking enemy soldiers were wiped out, and the Qi regained all the lost cities.The site of the old town of Jimo (Jimo Gucheng yizhi, 即墨 故城 遗址) is on the Shandong National Cultural Heritage list.
