Beautiful place, I want to visit this place again but in different seasons. Not too far from Yamaguchi Station. It takes about 40 minutes for walking.

Had a nice day trip out to Yamaguchi, this was by far my favourite place in Japan, so peaceful and tranquil and well kept. There is a koi pond under the pagoda, the koi are huge!

An absolutely beautiful way to waste a few hours, amazing 500yr old shrine. Try the traditional Japanese noodle restaurant just down the road too.

The symbol of Yamaguchi city is a must visit attraction while visiting Yamaguchi. The majestic five storied pagoda amidst the tranquil surroundings is just picture perfect!

Best color image with mountain green and beautiful wooden Pagoda is the best in Japan, compared with other Pagoda towers in Japan (Nara and Kyoto etc.)
