Akiyoshidō cave , a special national treasure, is one of the largest limestone caves in the country. It is filled with geographically precious objects such as gigantic stalagmites, rimstones like terraced rice fields, and many others. The cave started forming a million years ago and you will be fascinated with the visible history of the earth. Enjoy it thoroughly by viewing and photographing. You will walk through the cave comfortably as the temperature stays 17 ℃ throughout a year. You can go directly up to the Akiyoshidai Plateau from the elevator located in the middle of the cave.
this is a place where tourists from outside Japan pay much less entrance fee (700 Yen instead of 1200). Cool! The cave is very big and there area lot of different things to see. Our teenagers were fascinated. Amazing cave. Worth the visit. The interesting spots are illuminated, but it it still kind of dark in there. Wear good shoes, it is slippery. Parking is a bit away from cave entrance (you have to pass the usual shop mile). Takes over an hour for whole visit.

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!

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.

I found Saikotei while exploring nearby temples and first saw the lovely lawn and then the house. I was not sure if this was an attraction open to visitors, but sure enough it is! There is a small entrance fee but well worth it. You are free to explore the site, there is an upstairs as well. The highlight for me was the large hall full of tatami mats, it was absolutely beautiful. It was nice to walk around and see what a traditional house of this size looks like. The staff was helpful, there is an English brochure about the house. I would say, this site is well worth a visit, the grounds are just lovely.
