Kasadoshima- Kudamatsu, Yamaguchi
After exploring the island and admiring the cherry blossoms I went to Ojo Hotspring. The hotspring is located in a hotel, but you can go for a day trip without staying in the hotel. There is a medium sized bath inside as well as a sauna. Outside there is a rather tiny bath that overlooks the sea. It's very pleasant looking out onto the sea and watching the occasional boat pass by.
Kintai Bridge- Iwakuni
One place to definitely visit in Yamaguchi is the Akiyoshido limestone caves. The caves are the longest and have the biggest karst formations. In the summer the caves are nice and cool, so you can get away from the hot and humid weather. The cave is actually bigger than I expected and it can take over 1 hour to walk to the end and back.
Hagi, is famous for it's streets lined with white walls as well as Hagi pottery.
A famous Japanese drama called Hana Moyu (花燃ゆ ) was filmed in Hagi and there is a museum dedicated to that drama.
There are the remains of a castle in Hagi. But without knowing this I payed to enter the castle grounds and to my surprise there was no castle.
This place is most certainly not in any travel guide. The only reason I know about this lake is because I drove past it on my way to school.
Sugano lake is beautiful especially in the morning when the mist settles above the lake. In autumn all of the leaves surrounding it are a mixture of oranges, yellows and reds and in summer the leaves are a vibrant green.
A beautiful Buddhist temple that is a national treasure and is ranked in the top three in Japan.
