Hagi Castle Town

萩城下町

During the early stage of the introduction of industrial technology, technologies were characteristically developed within local communities under the guidance of the feudal clans which governed each domain. Mōri Terumoto who lost in the battle of Sekigahara in 1600 constructed Hagi Castle, and Hagi Castle Town was also systematically constructed. The districts where samurai and merchants lived was strictly divided, and Hagi prospered as the center of politics, administration and economy of the Hagi Domain for the next 260 years.
