Hagi domain castle was built by Terumoto Mōri in 1604 and over the next 260 years, Hagi Castle Town prospered. Former samurai residences, the old mud walls and the layout of Hagi Castle Town area still retain their traditional appearance. Historical sites are scattered throughout Hagi, truly making the entire city an open air museum.
