    cycling around the old city

    On the way to Mt.Kasa

    There are several places around Hagi to rent bicycles, most are around 1000yen, if you go to the tourist information center at Hagi station you can get a sheet of coupons but this is only useful if you can read Japanese.
    We rented bicycles at the tobacco shop behind the bus center. It was 1000yen for the entire day, the bikes have to be back at 7pm
