About 4km northeast of JR Yamaguchi Station, temple Jōei-ji is notable for its simple, stone-dotted Zen garden, Sesshutei , designed by the painter Sesshū. From the garden, a trail leads uphill through the woods to several more temples. You can reach the temple by bicycle or taxi (about ¥1300) from central Yamaguchi. Or take the train two stops to Miyano and from there it's about 1km to walk.
