Great Cities of Japan - Yamaguchi

Yamaguchi was the Capital of the great warrior clan Ouchi who traded with China. With their wealth they created a city in the image of Kyoto. They were open to all cultures, welcoming Francis Xavier, the first Jesuit in Japan. The clan was patron to one of Japan’s greatest artists Sesshu (1420-1506) who designed an impressive garden in the city. The clan ceded power to the Mori who would encourage scholarship leading to revolutionary thinkers being involved in the Meiji Restoration of 1868 and the eventual democratization of Japan. Learn about this fascinating history while strolling the streets of this beautiful city.
