Promenade in a forest of camellias
A natural grove of roughly 25,000 ccamellias (Camellia Japonica) grow gregariously on the foot of Mt. Kasayama near the Toragasaki Lighthouse. From December to March, when the camellias are in bloom, guides are on hand to point out specific spots worth seeing (reservation is required). The Hagi Camilla Festival is held annually from around the 3rd Saturday of February to the end of March. The camellia is the emblematic flower of Hagi City.
