Motonosumiinari Shrine

Reviewed By Apple_HK - Hong Kong

To travel all the way to the Yamaguchi province was for one only reason, the Motonosumi Inari Shrine because I have seen all the lovely photos on internet. It just happened that I went there on a Saturday so the traffic was really bad since there are very limited parking space and there is just no public transport. Got stuck in a traffic jam for nearly an hour, but being able to be there in person means that all the hassle paid. The sky and sea in sapphire blue, the red Torii’s and the greenery - you just cannot find such a view elsewhere!

Senjojiki

Reviewed By Muka_85 - Singapore, Singapore

I went on a Sunday and I saw many Japanese out with their families for picnic at Senjojiki. I cycled to Senjojiki from Senzaki Station in Nagato city. I started by renting an electric bicycle from the rental shop at the pier near Senzaki Station. From there, I cycled along the coast to reach Nagato-Furuichi Station. Then, it was an uphill cycle up to Senjojiki and then downslope to Motonosumi Inari Shrine. The to and fro journey took me 6 hours + 1 hour for lunch.
Back to Senjojiki, the location is on top of a hill and there is a good view of the rice fields near Nagato-Furuichi Station. It got slightly foggy which was quite interesting. You can also see some birds (eagles or falcons maybe) circling the skys. This is definitely worth a visit if you visit Nagato city! However, I would suggest that you cab here. (The cycling is quite tough)

Ryuguno Shiofuki

Reviewed By Edi Y

If you go to Yamaguchi prefecture-Japan you should visit this place. Beautiful scenery with pretty Red shrine. You will feel the good combination of natural and man-made beautifulness. However, there is no train or other public transport access to this place.

Omijima Kanko Kisen

Reviewed By Traveling_Diaspora - Iwakuni, Japan

Definitely fun for adults and priced reasonable. Kids - they will be excited for first 15 minutes like everything else, so bring your iPads and snacks!
Our pictures weren't as good, because it was a cloudy day. For the best view, chose a sunny and clear day. We still enjoyed the tour. Check out when the ship leave, and buy tickets at least 15 min prior, otherwise, you may end up waiting for the next ship, an hour later.
I strongly recommend being at the aft and starboard of the ship. The view from the open aft deck is certainly the best.

Higashi Ushirobata Tanada

Reviewed By ポポポ - Yamaguchi, Japan

棚田自体の美しさを求めるならもっと他に綺麗な棚田は沢山ありますが、この棚が100選に選ばれたのは、日本海一面に煌々と明かりを照らした漁火と、さらにその灯りが棚田に反射している美しさは、ここでしか見ることができないためです。
5月の夜はイカ釣り船が大挙として海に繰り出すので、その頃の夜は大勢のカメラマンが押し寄せてきます。
私が訪れたのは秋でしたから、もう稲の刈り入れも終わり寒々とした風景でした。

別名メモリアルロード。
海上アルプスと呼ばれる、海から林立するような鋭い岩の景勝地を鑑賞できます。
一番インパクトがあるのは象の鼻です。
遊歩道の展望台からみたり、浜に降りて間近でみたりできます。
自然にできたとは思えないほど、とても不思議な形をしています。

Heki Senjijiki

Reviewed By ササユリ - Kure, Japan

長門市中心部から北西に約15㎞、日本海に面した標高約330mの高台に広がる草原です。青い空と白い雲、広大な緑の草原、眼下には紺碧の日本海と白波、浮かぶ島々……。まさに絶景です。2月初旬だったため、気温が低く風も強かったため、ゆっくりと景色を楽しむことができませんでしたので、是非また訪れたいと思います。なお、ここには広い駐車場と小さな店、トイレなどがあります。
