Located in the center of Yamaguchi-ken, the Asahi Area groups
quiet agricultural villages (referred to as “navel of Yamaguchi”).
These villages were originally formed and developed as post
stations for the lord of the Hagi Domain who traveled periodically
between his home province and Edo. This area has preserved
historical monuments such as that for the transportation of
arrested Shōin Yoshida toward Edo and ruins such as the Hagi
Ōkan Road. The area has accumulated folk beliefs, legends and
folk tales. You will be invited to learn good old things.
