高杉晋作のお墓がありました。維新の志士たちの記念館もあり、歴史の勉強もできます。初代庵主となったのは、高杉晋作の愛妾おうのさんです。

初めて行きましたが、桜が満開で見頃でした。大きな寺を予想していましたが、こじんまりとした庵、そのとなりに記念館がありました。維新の志士たちの墓もありました。池の前には安倍総理が贈った高杉晋作像がありました。記念館で御朱印はいただくことができました。

歴史が好きな方にはおすすめ。6月の菖蒲が有名でしょうが、4月の桜が本当に美しい。ツツジもとてもきれいです。

          Heading west along Japan’s largest island, Honshu, the very last prefecture you’ll reach is Yamaguchi, separated from Kyushu by a small strip of water known as the Kanmon Straits, which the far-reaching harbor city Shimonoseki looks over. With water at every turn, the seafood of Yamaguchi is an indisputable highlight, and we’re not talking just the usual fish dishes—the notorious fugu, or puffer fish, is a Japanese delicacy that was discovered in Yamaguchi prefecture, making it the best place to try it out.
