萩本陣 Hagihonjin

Hagihonjin / Yamaguchi Hagi・Nagato 1


Hagi was the center stage of the Meiji Restoration. The town shows shadows of its origins as a Edo-era castle town that was populated by restoration zealots. The old-world feel of Hagi transports visitors to ancient Japan. 

Hagihonjin is located in east Hagi, where numerous historical landmarks are located within walking distance - Shokasonjuku, an academy that educated patriots of the Meiji Restoration; Hirobumi Ito's villa; and Shinsaku Takasugi's former residence, are some of the destinations in the area. We encourage visitors to immerse themselves in the history and culture of Hagi. 

The Japanese rooms were inspired by the tranquility of Hagi. The special guest room with an outdoor bath unit has a panoramic view that overlooks the entire city of Hagi. Enjoy a restful stay at Hagihonjin. 

Hagihonjin's onsen pulls water from a hot spring located 2,000 meters below ground. 
There are 14 different types of baths for guests to try, including the "Autumn Leaves Bath" and the "Tsubaki Bath". The water, which sprang 20,000 years ago, contains high amounts of sodium, chlorine, and calcium, which provide health and beauty benefits, such as alleviation of nerve and joint pain. 

Guests have a 360 degree view of the Hagi townscape and Sea of Japan from the Okuhagi Observatory, which also doubles as a foot bath. The magnificent views combined with a foot bath will surely make for a memorable experience. 

The meals at Hagihonjin utilize various ingredients sourced from Hagi and neighboring regions. 
Starting with the puffer fish, which is a Yamaguchi prefecture specialty, the meals harness local produce like Kenrangyu-branded beef, a Hagi specialty, and seafood from the Sea of Japan. The meals showcase the bountiful natural resources of this area. 

Hagi is a beautiful union of a historic town and the Sea of Japan. Explore Hagi and the surrounding areas from Hagihonjin.

Read more 歴史の町萩観光のため萩に泊まりました。 萩本陣に決めたのは『栞』の部屋を見つけたからです。1泊ですが思い出に残る『栞』でした。萩を一望して、半露天風呂で温泉も楽しめ、快適な部屋でした。 もちろん館内の14湯めぐりも最高でした。 部屋担当の方の的確なアドバイスのおかげで、中身の濃い観光が出来ました。ありがとうごさいました。 また食事の際には、豪華な活け造りにビックリ( ^o^)ノ いろいろと、おもてなしありがとうごさいました。 また萩の町を訪れ、萩本陣に泊まりたいと思った宿でした。

I stayed at a boat for sightseeing in a historical town. The reason I decided on the main team was because I found the room for "Tsubaki". It was one night, but it was a memorable "Sakai". It was a comfortable room with a panoramic view and a hot spring in the semi-open-air bath. Of course, 14 hot water tours in the building were also great. Thanks to the appropriate advice of the room manager, I was able to do a rich tour. Thank you very much. Also, at the time of eating, I was surprised at the wonderful lively structure (^ o ^) No. Thank you for your hospitality. I also visited the town of Kashiwa, and I wanted to stay at Tsujihonjin.
