A bustling port town noted as the site of two major battles in Japan's history, Shimonoseki also attracts gourmands as the world capital of the potentially poisonous pufferfish, or fugu--prepared only by licensed chefs and considered a delicacy.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Kaneko Misuzu Memorial Museum and Hagi Hakubutsukan. Museum-lovers will get to explore Old Ito Denemon House and Hagi Uragami Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Shimonoseki: Hagi (Tokoji Temple, Birth Place of Shoin Yoshida, & more), Kirara Beach Yakeno (in Sanyo Onoda) and Ube (Ube Coastal Road & Tokiwa Park). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Kumano Magaibutsu, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Futagoji Temple, steep yourself in history at Ao Cave Tonnel, and get engrossed in the history at Kaiten Museum.
