Hagi City Susa Museum of History and Folklore: Mikotokan萩市須佐歴史民俗資料館「みこと館」

Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

This museum collects and preserves materials related to the cultural heritage, history, and folklore of Susa. In the Edo period, the Masuda family served as important officials (eidai-garo) in the Mori domain, and this museum displays important items connected to them, as well as to Susa-Karatsu pottery and the Susa geopark. The name Mikoto Kan comes from the legend of the god Susanoo-no-Mikoto, whence Susa gets its name. The hall was closed for a time after the terrible floods that hit the Hagi City's eastern area in 2013, but the main hall and annex were reopened in 2015. The hall not only offers a place to learn of the charms of the Susa region, but also displays seiji celadon porcelain, what is considered the oldest celadon porcelain in Japan.

          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.
