Kirishima Shrine, Kirishima

(4.2/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
At Kirishima Shrine, explore the "realm where gods once descended." Once located at the foot of Mount Takachiho-no-mine, this Shinto refuge suffered repeated destruction from volcanic eruptions. The current shrine, last reconstructed in 1715, rests surrounded by tall pine trees and ranks as an Important Cultural Property of Japan. Examine the traditional Japanese architectural style, where vermilion lacquered columns and joists stand decorated with richly colored reliefs. Visit the 800-year-old sacred pine tree, believed to have powers to answer prayers. In fall, forest leaves blend with the shrine, creating a harmonious and vibrant scene. Stop by the tourist information office at the entrance for help and guidance. Put Kirishima Shrine at the forefront of your travel plans using our Kirishima trip generator.

  • 霧島神宮離開霧島神宮車站有一段距離, 而且巴士班次比較疏, 我們就是因為火車延誤, 未能趕上巴士, 要搭的士前往. 神宮置身樹林中, 寧靜, 安穩, 還有展望台可以遠望櫻島火山 
  • First thing in the morning and prayed. And the atmosphere was nice. But the No. 1 thing, Kagoshima Prefecture, shrine visitors. It is a shrine of the profound. Plum blossoms started to bloom. I ate rice Hoko. Yatsuhashi Kyoto sweets was. I think taste of cinnamon is strong, so some people some likes and dislikes.

  • 霧島神宮名氣響亮,本人亦十分期待,不過遊覽過後,有點不明所以,或許她的地位建基於其歷史背景吧?神宮寬敞莊嚴,日本神社的一貫寧靜,只是特色欠奉,順路可以一遊
