    It is a shrine of Shimazu Nariakira. To visit the free Museum tsubusemasu a little bit of time, but not interesting. I think I should have no special interest people were shopping with astronomical observatory.

    The shrine dedicated to the Duke of Shimazu Nariakira, is located about 5 minutes walk from the statue of Saigo. Torii Gates line are just big Podocarpus trees. Beautiful in feathery wings seems to be saving trees in Kagoshima City.

    Residents are historically high popularity of Shimazu Nariakira. In town so come by car, new year's difficult places. Hatsumode crowded with many people. New year's day, we recommend public transportation. May be somewhat higher if the car is good in Central Park underground parking.

June light during local television station the evening local news coverage is always. Check the announcers relayed by yukata. J League Kagoshima United F.C. did pray for victory here.
