Shoot video in Yamaguchi
The sea, rivers, islands, and the emotional streets that have produced great people. In Yamaguchi Prefecture, unique video shooting spots that cannot be found anywhere else are expanding.
It is no exaggeration to say that the most famous sightseeing spot in Yamaguchi is Kintai Bridge. Supported by intricately assembled trees, five arched bridges span Nishikikawa.Its length is 193.3m and width is 5m, which is a wonderful scale.
It is said to have been created by Empo Gan nen (1673), the third lord of the Iwakuni feudal lord Hiroyoshi Yoshikawa, and the remaining bridge is the fourth generation.
Fireworks festivals and Kintaikyo Bridge festivals are held every year, and many people are bustling throughout the year.
Tsudoshima is a small island with an area of about 3.93 m2 that floats off the coast of Hohoku-cho, Shimonoseki City, and has a population of less than 1,000.
The most attractive thing is the cobalt blue sea, which is transparent enough to see to the bottom. Because of its wonderful beauty, it has also been used in TV commercials.
A must-see is Tsudoshima Ohashi, where the appearance of sliding on the sea is recognized as a superb view.
After crossing the bridge, you can visit Kojima (Kita-Nagato Kaigan Quasi-National Park), which is small but rich in nature. At the western end of the island is Tsudoshima Lighthouse, where you can enjoy swimming in the summer.
It is one of the most beautiful scenic spots in Japan, where you can immerse yourself in a tropical atmosphere far away from Japan.
Hagi City, Yamaguchi Prefecture, became famous as a location for the 2015 drama “Hanamo Yu”.You may have heard the phrase "Hagi and Tsuwano", but Hagi is located in Yamaguchi Prefecture and Tsuwano is located in Shimane Prefecture, and surprisingly, these two cities are located slightly apart.
Although the current Hagi City has been widened by the merger, only the delta that faces the sea was once called Hagi City.
This very small old Hagi city is famous for producing many important historical figures from the end of the Tokugawa period to the Meiji era, especially the “Ishin no Shishi” who was active during the Meiji Restoration.
The townscapes that created such a prominent area as Shoin Yoshida, Hironobu Ito, Shinsaku Takasugi, Takamasa Kido (Kogoro Katsura), Kazumasa Maehara, and Motohiko Katori are still deeply preserved. There are plenty of spots for history lovers, such as the birthplace of Ishin No Shishi and their tombs.
Akiyoshidai, located in Mine City, is also one of Yamaguchi's leading tourist attractions. A vast karst plateau lined with limestone columns, the scenery that gives you the illusion of being in Japan spreads out in front of you.
In fact, it is thought that Akiyoshidai was a sea of coral reefs 350 million years ago. Coral and shellfish fossils are found in limestone as evidence, and many plants such as Sibera inhabit the sea.
It is a location full of unique charm that you will never forget once you see it.
Motonosumi Inari Shrine
Motonosumi Inari Shrine, built on the cliff side facing the Sea of Japan, is a popular spot where you can enjoy a unique scenery with a beautiful contrast between the red torii gate and the blue sea.
The fact that it was selected as one of the 31 most beautiful places in Japan selected by CNN in the United States also indicates that it is a world-renowned superb view.
The appearance of the torii gates, including Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto, can be seen at Inari Shrines around the country, but it is said that only Motonosumi Inari Shrine can be seen with the sea.
