Yamaguchi

What is Yamaguchi?

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.

Getting Around

Yamaguchi is an impressive 1,000 kilometers across the country from Tokyo, but if you’re planning on going this far, the JR Pass is sure to serve you well. The Sanyo-Tokaido Shinkansen runs all the way to Shin-Yamaguchi Station from Tokyo Station in around 4.5 hours. With a one-way ticket setting you back around 20,000 yen, flights to Yamaguchi-Ube Airport or Kitakyushu Airport are often cheaper than purchasing a bullet train ticket for those without a JR Pass.
