  • The city of Hagi Castle mainly scattered 見処. Only accredited world heritage town and able to enjoy the town with relatively extensive.

The House again and fresh flowers in each House, please explain the volunteers can receive hospitality in the House. Received the impression of the world heritage town and people.

Tokyo area because it's very hard to go, but direct Hagi in half an hour using the share taxi from Yamaguchi Ube Airport!

  • One of the charms of the Hagi would be white-walled town. As well as meeting one of takasugi shinsaku is filled.

The only time is flowing.
