  • Very interesting street full of cute monster statues and shops. There is one museum showing all the history of the animation and also some stories about the editor. Good place to visit!!
  • A street mainly sells souvenir of the cartoon character - "GeGeGe no Kitarō"。There are many shops here and you can take great photos here.
  • whose like horor Japan animation, It's so interesting place gor you.
  • I went on a short free trip, but I was disappointed with the construction.
  • A very peculiar place. This is a road with various shops, museums and statues devoted to Mizuki Shigeru, the creator of GeGeGe No Kitaro. The place is infested with yokai, or Japanese ghouls, creating a playfully creepy atmosphere. Well worth strolling through if you are in the area.
