Pin It

The laid back town of Hagi sits on the coast of the Sea of Japan. The town is famous for its top grade pottery but is dominated by the untainted samurai quarter of Jokamachi. The Jokamachi area consists of narrow streets lined with Japanese pine trees and traditional samurai houses. The sea laps the sandy beaches of Hagi to provide for an truly idyllic Japanese setting.
