Toko-ji Temple (黄檗宗 護国山 東光寺)

The Toko-ji Temple is a temple in Hagi City belonging to the Obaku school of Zen Buddhism; it was the Bodai-ji (family temple) of the Mori family, the lords of the Hagi Domain. The temple was built in 1691 on the orders of Mori Yoshinari, the third lord of Hagi; the tombs of the fifth, seventh, ninth and eleventh lords of Hagi, along with those of their wives and concubines, are in the Mori family graveyard within the Temple grounds. The Toko-ji Temple features several interesting examples of Chinese-style architecture, including the So-mon (main gate), the Daioho-den hall and the Shoro (bell tower), all of which have been designated as Important Cultural Properties.

          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.
