Samurai residences arranged in a grid layout make Hagi Castle Town a top spot for learning about architecture dating back to the Edo period.

  • The castle town, which extends outward from the outer moat of the old castle, was divided into a cross-cut, with a series of medium- and lower-class samurai residences. Even now, the town muscle remains intact, and I think that it is wonderful that there is a taste that the appearance of the past is kept. It was also good that there were many old houses of the samurai of the end of the Edo period, such as Takasugi Yusaku and Kido Takayoshi, and there were many attractions.

  • The car can be parked in the parking lot of the museum or in the parking lot of the central park. I stopped in the parking lot of the central park and walked. If you can enter the castle town by car, it is recommended to walk around. Because it is only a compact corner, I wonder if it is possible to enjoy enough in one hour. Or maybe you can get out of the castle town and enjoy a coffee shop. The atmosphere is certainly good, but if you take the elements of the history of the Restoration and think of it as a beautiful town landscape, it is a little doubtful that this is especially good compared to other places in Japan.
