The Old Yamaguchi Feudal Administration Office Gate was the front gate of Yamaguchi Seijido surrounded by the latest Western style castle in the end of Edo period.

This gate was the front gate of “Yamaguchi Seijido” and built when the Domain headquarters was moved from Hagi to Yamaguchi in 1864, later designated as a Prefectural Important Cultural Property. The site is surrounded by a Western style castle, which was the most modern at that time, and still has the ditch which composed the castle as it was.
