Yamaguchi prefecture on the southwest side of Honshu is part of the Chugoku region, and is home to some truly breathtaking views.
From Iwakuni Castle on the mountains you can view the Kintai Bridge, a series of wooden arch bridges first built in the 1600s. Here you will also find Motonosumi Inari Shrine, the Akiyoshidai Plateau and an impressive underground limestone cave system. There are also stunning ocean views along the coast and many other hidden spots to discover here.
