Stone Sculpture Park (石彫公園)

3.5

Park / Green Space

This park spreads along the west side of Hagi Castle ruins. The park has monuments representing Past-Present-Future, as well as playground equipment, and benches. Many of the sculptures with very skillful shapes sculptures were done by 24 artists from eight countries who participated in the 1981 International Sculpture Symposium here. The greenery-embraced grounds have become a popular place for rest and peaceful contemplation with locals, and in spring the blooming azaleas create a beautiful contrast with the lush greenery for a famous local sight.

Review of Sekicho Park

Reviewed:2020/01/13 史跡に似合うのか疑問
萩城址の石垣と海岸の間に石を使った現代芸術が配置された公園がありました。こういう好き嫌いの分かれる施設は、史跡からはもう少し離れた場所に作った方がよいと思いました。
Reviewed:2019/08/07 地元の方であふれているが、素晴らしいインスタレーション作品です。
石彫公園になっていますが、石の組み合わせによるインスタレーション(環境芸術)。萩城跡西側にこんな素晴らしいところがあるとはつゆ知らずでした。奥に進むと、日本海に面した砂浜にも作品が置かれており、とても癒されます。
Reviewed:2019/08/03 萩城を見学して西側に抜けると、海に面した広い公園に至ることができました。
萩城を見学して西側に抜けると、海に面した広い公園に至ることができました。石の彫刻がいくつも置かれていて、雄大な海を眺めることも出来ます。幕末の時代に思いを馳せながら散策しました。

          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.
