Where to stay

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.
