Park, Ruin sights in Hagi
- Sort by:
There's not much of the old Hagi-jō to see, apart from the typically imposing outer walls and the surrounding moat. The castle was built in 1604 and dismantled in 1874 following the Meiji Restoration. But the grounds are a pleasant park, with the Shizukiyama-jinja (志都岐山神社), the Hanano-e Tea House (花江茶亭) from the mid-19th century, and other buildings. From the castle ruins you can climb the hillside to the 143m peak of Shizuki-yama.
