  • 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.
  • The Home town of gegege no kitaro, if you are a fan you'll want to go. All of the characters have been turned in to statue's and have been placed along the road. There's a museum, a haunted house attraction. The hotel right near the station is beautiful and the service was great.
  • If you are a fan of the Ge Ge Ge Kitaro manga, this is the place to come. It's a short walk from the port of Sakai (Minato). The are small statues up and down the street. There are countless gift shops. And there is a museum.
  • must go...
  • Not very special indeed.
