Tainei-ji Temple大寧寺

Event

A famous Buddhist temple and one of the foremost in Soto Buddhism. Located in Fukawayumoto, Nagato City, Yamaguchi Prefecture, the temple has long been considered the “Koya of the West,” a reference to the holy temple area known as Koyasan in Wakayama Prefecture. The temple is also famously known as the location where Ouchi Yoshitaka, who won fame as the conqueror of Western Japan, committed suicide by sword. Many Yoshino cherries, double-flowered cherries, and weeping cherries grow on the temple’s grounds, and in spring the temple becomes covered in light pink blossoms. The temple is a popular spot for cherry blossom viewing at night; during the blooming period from late March to early April, the trees are lit up until 23:00. Toilets, shops and free parking available.

          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.
