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!

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.

I biked around the whole island from Iwakuni about 100 miles and enjoyed every minute of my trip to Oshima. There is a road that circles the entire island, I prefer the southern side. There are gorgeous views of the ocean and small fishing villages worth exploring. I noticed a lot of restaurants and cafes don't open until at least 11 am, so plan for that. I rode around the last day of November and the temperatures were on the cooler side mainly because of the winds. Right when you cross the bridge onto the island there is a mountain with an observatory deck that is worth it for the views. There are nice beaches along the island and a few museums, I will have to visit next time. Oshima is also famous for their oranges, so if you get a chance to try them, well worth it! What a fantastic island!

An interesting and attractive castle containing a display of a range of Japanese swords and other weapons. We recommend you take the ropeway (cable car) to the top of the hill where the castle is.

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 .
