Enjoy the of the lagoon city scenery of Hagi from the river and the sea
Hagi Castle Town in Yamaguchi Prefecture is registered as a World Heritage Site for its history and preserved traditions of the Edo period. To fully take in the scenery of this town, the Hagi Sightseeing Boat is highly recommended! This leisurely sightseeing course on the river is a 40-minute round trip route that starts from Shizuki Bridge near the ruins of Hagi Castle, enters the Hashimoto River, and finishes off with a ride along the historic white walls of the samurai houses. You can enjoy the castle town from a different angle than by walking around the city. When the weather is nice, you will be able to see Kikugahama Beach and the earthen and stone walls of Hagi castle on the foot of Mt. Shizuki from the sea. There are also seasonal routes for you to enjoy throughout the year, such as a cherry blossom viewing course in the spring, an underwater viewing of the Sea of Japan during the summer, and an autumn leaves viewing course in the fall.
