Shoka Village School, Hagi

See where one of the Meji Restoration heroes, Yoshida Shoin, taught Japanese students of every social status at Shoka Village School. The tiny wooden and tiled roof school began as a single 13 sq m (139 sq ft) classroom with eight tatami floors. Eventually the students helped and added an additional room and 105 tatami floors. The celebrated teacher discussed the future of the nation here, inspiring many of his followers and students to become reformers of modern Japan. Inside, see the statue dedicated to the great mentor and photographs of the renowned reformers. Take the guesswork out of planning a Hagi vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • Setagaya Shoin shrine there, but here is the originator. You could sense the thoughts brought up the Meiji Shoin Yoshida.

  • And without much of a private school which produced the restoration of Edo as is famous too, in a simple atmosphere, had learned here about what discussions at that time, takasugi shinsaku and Itō Hirobumi at hasemashita thought.

  • On a tour of senior citizens came to 24 in. I was impressed because I've come in a year and a half ago, but this time in a long time in all sincerity Treasure Museum also did. Reread the distillate spirit book, was written of real small piece of paper so that you recognize. It is 10/27/1859 to be, where he died in tenma-Cho started writing two days before, has finished writing the next day. People who came to see the long-awaited syoka's take a look at the Treasure Museum"sincerity" in you want. General admission is 500 yen, high. You want them more cheaply. There is another Museum that exhibits, but there is enlightening too think too, so again, real's pine-and in the Treasure Museum hope to see. A Furukawa Kaoru translation [Yoshida pine shade s Soul book"(Tokuma Shoten) see here of real pine shades relations books a lot, but would be good to read, in any modern translation with commentary. You can see part of the greatness of the Shoin teacher. I think I understand why this small school year I taught in just matter of influence. Will be to redouble the energy toward restoration from the end of Edo period, historical events in the Ansei Purge, got rid of these people together. Not in energy to the restoration did not only pine trees shade the teacher taught here. Celebrates the end of shogunate restoration, is still needed even after 9 years.

Where to stay in Hagi

The old castle town of Hagi has a number of particularly characterful accommodations in its historic center. Primarily located next to the river as it works its way inland, the options here include traditional ryokans with Japanese-style rooms and onsite onsens. Look farther out from the historic core for the budget-friendly options, including a couple of hostels and some standard hotels--here you'll have basic amenities, but great access to the main sights of this small town.
