Within this park, there's not much of the old Hagi-jō to see, apart from the typically imposing outer walls and the surrounding carp-filled moat. The castle was built in 1604 and dismantled in 1874 following the Meiji Restoration. But the inner grounds are a pleasant park, with spring cherry blossoms, the Shizuki-yama-jinja , the Hanano-e Tea House from the mid-19th century and other buildings. Asa Mōri House is a nagaya (Japanese long house). From the castle ruins you can climb the hillside to the 143m peak of Shizuki-yama.
