Hagi no Yado

Tourist Information

A trip for encountering the culture of Hagi, rich with beautiful nature and a long history

As the longtime home of Tomoe, Hagi is place where evidence of history is always close at hand.
Heian Bridge was once an entrance leading into the castle town.
Crossing this stone bridge, visitors encounter a town of white walls that prospered at the foot of Hagi Castle.
Shoka Sonjuku became a school that later produced many prominent figures who were active in the new Meiji government, and the school became one of the famous sites of Hagi.
In the same way, the stone monument on the grounds of Shoin Shrine reads “Birthplace of the Meiji Restoration”. The original scroll bearing this calligraphy is on exhibit at Tomoe.

The changing flow of colors in Hagi scenery

The otherworldy beauty of the Kasayama Camelia Groves is not only a sight while the flowers are in bloom, but is also known for its changing expressions in each of the four seasons.
Kikugahama Beach, a popular swimming beach during the summer, is located around 12 minutes’ walk from Tomoe. The contrast of the evening sea, mountains, and setting sun is a spectacular sight.
The scenery which changes little by little with the seasons and the height of the sun above the horizon never fails to make a deep impression on visitors.
