I spent a day in Hagi, and Tokoji Temple was high on my list of places to visit. I drove a car here, it is not far from the down town area and there is a parking lot to the side of the temple. I've lived in Japan almost a year now and have explored a lot and Tokoji Temple might be my favorite so far. I like that Hagi is not to touristy, so I had this site practically to myself. The gate was huge and the temple itself was massive, I like the old dry wood, it just looks old and authentic. I agree with most people that the major attraction here are the graves of the Mori Lords. This can be found on the opposite side of the temple near the back. Bring your camera as this grave site is absolutely beautiful and peaceful. I wish I knew more of the history here as it was very interesting. The Tokoji Temple is not to be missed if in the area.

We loved visiting here. The long wide walkway up to the main temple in a setting of old pines. Walking around it we came upon a shaded grassy area with graves of warriors. This area leads to a much larger, longer path through a thousand large stone lanterns. You see five toriis near the end, containing graves of warriors. It was a delightful, mossy area seemingly lost in time.

If you have visited Nara, this temple gives you that kind of feeling. I like this temple, and you may walk and explore a bit until the rear part of the temple, and you may see the graveyards of former feudal lords, the Mori family members which is very beautiful. Oh yes, you need to buy your entrance ticket to enter, and opposite the temple, there is a shop selling locally made Hagi ceramics.....

We went to there on weekday,so there is no parson except us. It’s very quite and the smell of after rain made a good atmosphere.

It was a pleasant 15-20 minutes walk from Shoin Shrine to Tokoji Temple. The Chinese-influenced Tokoji Temple is located in the compound after passing through the first beautiful red gate and the second imposing and intricate gate. Walking deeper into the temple compound, you will reach the graves of the odd-numbered Mori lords (The first and even-numbered lords are at the more out of the way Daishoin Temple. However, their graves are just as impressive) Upon reaching the graves which was in a serene wooded area, hundreds of beautiful traditional stone lanterns lined the paths to the graves. Really a magnificent sight.
