While he was out on bail, he opened a private school in his hometown Hagi and educated disciples who conducted turbulent Japan. Please visit the Gukisho of Shoin Yoshida in the mountain side of Rendaiji, where he hid himself before his attempt to go out of Japan. (10 minutes' drive / Wednesday holiday)
