  • Hotels near Kagoshima Chuo station headed by rental car. Knowing and there is free parking for visits to precincts, I use the metered parking nearby. Reminded me of that visit here, in front of the gate hotel (country house) and stayed about 10 years ago. Is a Shinto shrine can feel free to visit at close range from the Kagoshima Center, Astronomical Observatory. This is where you want every stop during the tour.

  • 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.
