2022 golden week trip to hagi, yamaguchi: part 4

We’ve made it! This is the last you’ll have to read about Yamaguchi for a while!

Day seven and our final day (not really, but I’ve kind of written them that way – we stayed for about three weeks in total).

We headed back over to near Daishōin Temple・大照院 to go to Moco Cafe that we’d seen but not been brave enough to venture into. After some research, we decided that it looked nice and took the plunge.

I had egg sandwiches which had ham on, so I removed that and proceeded to eat. They are a bakery and the bread is the star of the show – it was very good. My husband had the chicken basket and he said that was nice. It came with a drink, soup, salad and a mini dessert all for ¥770.

We trotted about, enjoying the air and the quiet. You forget how noisy Tokyo is when you’ve left for a few days.

Evening was upon us and we went for curry at Namaste. If you go, go at lunch time. Dinner is too expensive in my opinion for what it is. Also, despite the reviews, if you’re used to Japanese Indian curry and have lots of options in bigger cities – I’m thinking Tokyo, living in Edogawa-ku, well let’s just say, it might not be quite what you’re used to. It’s fine but it’s nothing special and the choice is lacking of veggie options.

That concludes Hagi 2022, Golden Week. I hope you enjoyed reading about our travels and perhaps it’s even tempted you to visit? If you’ve never been to the Japanese countryside and you want to try it out, it’s not a bad place to start.
