Hotels to be checked out in Yamaguchi Prefecture

Yamaguchi Prefecture is the westernmost prefecture in Honshu and connects the island of Kyushu with Honshu.
Yamaguchi Prefecture is famous for its five-arched arch bridge, Kintaikyo, Japan's largest limestone cave, Akiyoshido, and the famous local food product, Fugu (blowfish). You should definitely check them out if you visit Yamaguchi.

In this article, we will introduce the hotels we would recommend when traveling in Yamaguchi Prefecture.

The variety-rich Japanese and Western-style breakfast buffet includes a morning curry from a curry specialty store and fried fugu. In Yamaguchi Prefecture, there is a custom of reading fugu as “fuku” because the pronunciation is the same as the word that means "luck".
