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.

Unrin-ji Temple

The story goes back to the Edo Period and takes place in the Hagi Castle. Terumoto Mori was a famous samurai who built Hagi-han. One of his men named Motofusa Nagai had been very loyal to him. It is said that Motofusa Nagai had a lovely kitten. However, soon after Terumoto Mori passed away, Motofusa Nagai, the owner of the lovely kitten, also followed him into the grave. The little kitten wouldn’t leave Motofusa Nagai’s tomb and had waited in front of the tomb for 49 days. Later, to meet its owner, the kitten committed suicide by biting its tongue and then died. The local monks held a grand ceremony of condolence for the kitten. Up to now, this story about the loyal kitten continues in the Unrinji Buddhist Temple.

If you like cats and you’re going to the Hagi area, this place needs to be on your list! The people who work here were super nice and I just loved all of the cat figures everywhere. It’s a small temple, but it is one of the cutest temples I have ever been too. Be sure to take you Shuincho (temple stamp book)! The Goshuin here is cute!
