Outside the pagoda area was a really loud non-relaxing place, Yamaguchi-city. This protest was passing through the center of town, everyone yelling something. The police guy was kind enough to set the traffic light to stop.

The city of Yamaguchi is about two hours west of Iwakuni by JR local train, it's kind of a quiet town known for a 5-stroy pagoda. Unfortunately, on the day I visited was rain and no one shared the standard-issue Yamaguchi umbrella. Everyone all over the city had these red-blue umbrella.
