I live not far from Yamaguchi and have visited the Pagoda and Temple for the first time. The Pagoda is considered one of Japan's great Pagoda's. The layout is beautiful with the pond in front and hills in the background. You can really get some amazing photos here. I want to come back during each season to see the Pagoda and surrounding nature. Walk around the park and temple to get other views of the pagoda. If in Yamaguchi Prefecture, make the Ruriko Five Story Pagoda a must see!

If you see postcards or magazines of Yamaguchi, more then likely the Tsunoshima bridge will pop up. This bridge is absolutely incredible and the whole island is gorgeous. There is a large parking lot at the base of the bridge for photos and viewing the Sea. Mid way through the bridge is a small pull off area. The bridge is absolutely gorgeous with the turquoise waters. The island hosts many attractions including a lighthouse, shrines, beaches, and hiking. This place does get crowded during peak tourist seasons, so come prepared. If you are in Yamaguchi, this bridge and island are well worth a visit!

Kozan Park is absolutely beautiful! I came here mainly to see the Pagoda, unaware of all the other gems in this park. First, the Pagoda is beautiful! The backdrop of the mountains and pond in front makes for great photos. The Temple here is just as gorgeous. After visiting the temple and pagoda, I recommend walking toward the cemetery to view the tomb and then walk down toward the old houses that are open for viewing. After my wife and I visited all the sites here, we sat on a bench and just enjoyed the beauty of the park. I hope to get back here during the fall, I expect it is quite lovely.

Hofu Tenmangu is one of three major Tenmangu in Japan, beside Kyoto and Dazaifu. It is a highlight of Hofu sightseeing and absolutely worth visiting. The long passage to the shrine has a quaint atmosphere. The steps are a little bit hard to climb, but from the level of the main building, you can enjoy a nice view of the city. The surrounding area is also very pleasant like a park.

The reason why I travelled to Yamaguchi Prefecture was so that I could visit this UNESCO World Heritage Site. And it was definitely worth it! The buildings and monuments within the old castle town is beautiful and well worth a walk along the old streets while taking in the history of it all.

下関側から見た関門橋。唐戸市場のあたりから撮影した。以下は、かつて英文で書いた紹介だが、修正して引用したい。Covid-19が収束したら、海外からも戻ってきてほしい。 The Bridge is at the narrowest spot in the Kanmon Straits between Shimonoseki, Honshu and Moji, Kyushu, where there were two historical battles. The first one was fought between Genji-clan and Heike-clan in 1185. Emperor Antoku passed away here in the Strait and Genji started the Samurai period in Kamakura. The second one may be called Shimonoseki Campaign (Shimonoseki War), when Choshu-clan( in Yamaguchi Prefecture) was defeated by the fleet made of the 4 countries- the British Empire, USA, France and the Netherlands in 1864. Shinsaku Takasugi who was a kind of representative of the Choshu side started to topple down the Samurai system. The first place of the movement started in Kozanji temple(national treasure temple) in Chofu, Shimonoseki, a few months later after the defeat in 1864. The armies led by Shinsaku Takasugi defeated the Samurais which were more than 10 times in size and scale. This became the substantial start to establish the Meiji Restoration in 1868.
