Hagi Castle Town
After Terumoto Mori had Hagi Castle constructed in 1604, the castle town flourished for 260 years with 36,000 seki (measurement signifying maximum crop yield). Modern-day Hagi City is one of Japan’s historical cities.
The profound buke yashiki (samurai houses), natsumikan oranges that peer above the dobei (earthen walls), namako (latticed) walls, and kaimagari (traditional Japanese street corners) draw out the atmosphere of this castle town.
