  • Horiuchi preservation district designated important traditional building group preservation area with old peace and Hamasaki district, contains the views of the scenery was a Samurai. Continue with white stucco walls and was the residence of the elder statesman, is very spacious one. Kuchiba family residence, seems you can see inside the building. Maybe because there are no high buildings, feel the atmosphere of the Edo period. From the ruins of Hagi Castle by Aaru bus, we rented a bike and went for a stroll. In the back of a hedge or growing Orange, "Hagi is able to feel.
