  • Shrine located at Castle Mountain from the Astronomical Observatory. Something are specified in the odd shape of the tree at the entrance of the monument of the city. It looked as crowded as the place to come to prayer with various citizens of Kagoshima City.

  • The shrine is located in the vicinity of the city centre and can be reached on foot. The shrine area is larger than the number of tourists. On the other day, the local residents were seen visiting the shrine. And there is a stone outside the shrine of the big Ukraine, the middle is the road, more special. Due to the Jing in the city, there is time to go.

  • 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.
