  • Like I said is it Satsuma clan in the 11th generation Lord Shimazu Nariakira, but outsiders Kagoshima citizens go to make new year's shrine, and is said to familiarise. Went to see just from new year's Eve through new year's day in Kagoshima was paid. Stalls are lined up from the dark, brighten and began bustling with more paid visitors.

  • 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.
