  • It is is not so big but intimate shrine. Shinto shrine dedicated to the Duke of Shimazu Nariakira's, in the Museum of Duke of Shimazu Nariakira. Since the Museum was posted and see today's admission free"seems when you pay.

  • 在走往鶴丸城的途中經過這邊, 看到了難得的古裝銅像就走了進去, 走近了才發現是島津齊彬的銅像。 加上後面就是城山, 雖然時間有限還是在這拍了一些照片。 銅像之類的總是讓人會想拍照?

  • Kagoshima at a famous shrine. Kagoshima summer tradition, six representative locations of light. June light during local television evening in local news coverage is always. Check the announcers relayed by yukata. J League Kagoshima United F.C. did pray for victory here. "Flesh-light" collection of meat stalls in the environment was convened twice in 2016. Me, I'm a shrine here (--;)

  • Rake Toshogu Shrine in the Ghost Watch I been invited. Recommended to pray is that so, and didn't open anything because it was early in the morning, but released the unpopular time slot to take a walk. Fortune had in vending machines and is good.
