Shōin Shrine, Hagi
(4.3/5 based on 220 reviews on the web)
Explore the political history memorialized at Shōin Shrine, a site dedicated to social activist and samurai Yoshida Shoin. After a failed attempt on a government official's life, Shoin was sentenced to death in 1859. However, his ideals and teachings are considered to be instrumental in bringing about the Meiji restoration, and he is remembered fondly as a patriot who gave his life for his country. In the grounds, you can visit a couple of museums telling the hero's story through models and artifacts, as well as Shoin's preserved classroom and home. Unfortunately, neither of the museums have much English language information available. Use our Hagi vacation route planner to add Shōin Shrine and other attractions to your Hagi vacation plans.

  • Walking in was and is a small shrine visit. Hagi circulation maaaru bus parking is available and the JR san'in Honsen line Higashi-Hagi station and city sights almost stops at a frequency of 30 minutes, so easy to go. On-site sonjuku and Dr. Shoin death poem phrase "parent affection more than I think my what when blinded by" of there are a number of attractions including stone tablets, bamboo filial piety.
