  • White Wall Street remains well. You can enjoy the atmosphere of the castle restored gate. Bicycles can be rented here is good to explore on foot, so no time to go around by bicycle is recommended. But Hagi ware souvenir shops in the town.

  • As it happens, has a parking lot and tried to walk but is a really nice town. It was, he should support the walk is ¥ 500, but get soft serve ice cream and juice after walking around and you pay admission, so close to the real free State. It than anything else, kind description, it was fantastic. I spent about half a day is possible at the trot, but is slow to explore!

  • After visiting the remains of the castle of Hagi, we naturally crossed the old town near the castle with its white walls that hide the lovely houses of the Samurai. Small garden with orange trees and the khaki. The temples with the calm with these niwaki and gardens of the stones. All this ends up in a city more modern less pretty but not without a certain charm as bcp.
