I enjoyed the museum. It is filled with modern ceramic art in the permanent exhibit. Only cost 300 yen. There are also an exhibit showing how wood block prints are carved and colored. There is some detailed prints showing how a maiden would live and the arts she would do all of her free time. There is also really exquisite lacquerware. I didn’t see the traveling exhibit that was held in three other halls. That was 1100 yen.

It was a pleasant 15-20 minutes walk from Shoin Shrine to Tokoji Temple. The Chinese-influenced Tokoji Temple is located in the compound after passing through the first beautiful red gate and the second imposing and intricate gate. Walking deeper into the temple compound, you will reach the graves of the odd-numbered Mori lords (The first and even-numbered lords are at the more out of the way Daishoin Temple. However, their graves are just as impressive) Upon reaching the graves which was in a serene wooded area, hundreds of beautiful traditional stone lanterns lined the paths to the graves. Really a magnificent sight.

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.

Kikuya Residence is one of a sight to see in Hagi. Five buildings designated as national important property and beautiful gardens are highlight. A lot of tourist from foreign countries visit here, and enjoy Japanese architecture and culture. In Edo period, Kikuya Family was a great marchant which had close rerationship with Mori Clan. Now, you can enjoy buildings, gardens and various articlesーthe fine arts and tools. And,many points of photo wating for you .
