  • There is only five-story pagoda is famous too, amazing indeed. Admiring the views from this side of the pond. It would be pretty leaves and snow.

  • In the depths of the national treasure pagoda. Zazenkai sometimes seems to have the participation of the single-engine seems difficult. Maybe there are up and down stairs, so hard to pray is a lame foot.

  • Nice and peaceful temple with natures surrounding. This place is quite different from other parts in Japan that people are so friendly to tourists even the bus driver. But the transportation is not so good compared to big cities so I strongly recommend you to plan schedule carefully before you come.
  • Elegant pagoda with beautiful landscape in Yamaguchi city. It is good place for taking photograph or just sightseeing. Recommended for tourist or local people.
  • A small, nice and quaint temple. Worth a visit if you happen to drop by Yamaguchi city.
  • Beautiful temple with a nice park.
  • This is a world heritage temple. The landscape and the garden was beautiful.

Where to stay in Yamaguchi

Yamaguchi doesn't offer a wide variety of lodging options, but you can still find some acceptable hotels in the city, especially near Shin-Yamaguchi station. There, choose from a number of Western-style chain hotels, as opposed to traditional "ryokan" guesthouses. There are also a few business hotels and a local hostel in the city. For more diversity, look to the nearby city of Yuda Onsen.
