Chomonkyo Gorge長門峡


A designated Place of Scenic Beauty, lovely Chomonkyo Gorge is reminiscent of a traditional ink painting, and in each of the four seasons the gorge offers up distinctive, moving scenery. The gorge's most spectacular scenery can be enjoyed in the fall when the autumn foliage is at its peak, and visitors are encouraged to enjoy the gorgeous natural view while strolling along the 5.5 kilometer walking path in the gorge. A Maple Festival is also held here on November 3.

Yamaguchi Main Areas


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.
