The little country castle town that changed Japan's future
A well-preserved castle town, Hagi in Yamaguchi Prefecture is a place of great historical and cultural significance. One of the crucibles of the revolution that ended samurai rule in Japan, the city is home to five World Heritage sites that chronicle the birth of Japanese industrialization. The town is known for a type of pottery that bears its name, as well as a district of lovingly preserved samurai residences and white-walled streets lined with orange trees.

- Seeing the five World Heritage sites that helped change Japanese industry
A pivotal player that altered Japan's politics and industry forever
Despite being hundreds of kilometers away from Tokyo, Hagi helped change Japan both politically and industrially. Along with the revolutionaries in the Satsuma Domain in Kyushu, the leaders here helped overthrow the shogunate and opened Japan to modernization.
Hagi is also where early steps toward industrialization were made during the mid-18th century. The five UNESCO World Heritage sites here—Hagi Castle Town , the Hagi Reverberatory Furnace, Ebisugahana Shipyard, Shokasonjuku Academy and Ohitayama Tatara Iron Works—were built to further the ambitions of the local samurai clans. They are all located close to Hagi.
The town's well-preserved samurai and merchant district is unchanged enough that it can be explored using a map from the Edo period.
Day-tripping from Hagi
HAGI CITY 60 MIN BY CAR
Once you've thoroughly explored all that Hagi has to offer, it's time to venture a little further afield. One suggested excursion is a visit to Senjojiki Plateau , which overlooks the ocean, before walking through the stunning passageway of 123 red torii gates at Motonosumi Inari-jinja Shrine .
Kintaikyo Bridge and its impressive arches, one of the symbols of Yamaguchi, makes an excellent day trip from Hagi.
Make your own Hagi yaki pottery
While you're here, try your hand at making the local style of pottery under the guidance of a local artisan. Hagi yaki pottery has been associated with the tea ceremony since the Edo period (1603-1867), and is an integral part of Hagi's local culture. Meeting potters and visiting their studios offers a unique opportunity to understand this ancient tradition and the significance it still holds in Hagi.
