  • One of the charms of the Hagi would be white-walled town. As well as meeting one of takasugi shinsaku is filled. Though kikuya family residence in the large shelves of old Samurai and merchants are opening up at an additional cost and is full of attractions. Just walking around, it is fun. The only time is flowing.

  • White-washed streets, nearly obsolete at the time as I was impressed. House and home of the Patriot of the restoration, has published is one you can watch. At his home here there are citrus fruits almost gone lump felt then and now still live under life.

  • I think in advance considering the places you want to visit the Castle trail, as there is, it's more efficient for getting around. The street is nice to imagine why overall, surrounded by whitewashed Board fences and Ishigaki Samurai town, kikutani alley certified top 100 roads in Japan are named name. Explore the map listed numerous attractions such as the ruins of Hagi Castle, Hagi Castle kiln, Gate House, kuchiba House and key songs, peace bridge, birthplace of takasugi Susumu made, Kido Takayoshi's old House, kikutani's House. (Number of places is the toilet)
