What to See & Do


Townscape of Hagi

Town That Gave Birth to Key Figures in the Meiji Restoration

Hagi Castle Town is partitioned in a grid-shaped pattern and is lined with samurai residences that retain the vestiges of ancient times. We recommend going cycling or walking. This will give you a feeling like that of going back to those times. Hagi is also known as the city of water. Going around the famous places here on a pleasure boat is popular. The area is also blessed with seafood. You can eat freshly caught purple puffer and fresh sea urchin that are famous products of Yamaguchi Prefecture. A popular experience is to try glass blowing to make Hagi ware and Hagi glass as memories of your trip.
