  • To see rat man had since 7/2018 seems to be a renovation completed in construction area were walking on the road, I got a photo. Is 800 m from the sakaiminato station Shigeru Mizuki Museum, but Kitaro world full of monsters in the must-sees! You can put Kitaro postmarked mail at the post office is on the road. Will not post submissions, contact and could push it is suspicious. Is a station in the normal postal Kitaro-related postcards, place was not. Buy souvenir shop on a postcard, or photo box, such as taking ID photos 写reru photos with Kitaro is located along the road near it can make even the picture postcard of the original 500 yen in there. Eyeball lights illuminated at night after loading is complete, the specter of shadow or appeared on the road surface, day and night more seem to evolved to enjoy. Staff have until now been renewed after where you can enjoy too. Of course I also thank you!

  • Is the birthplace of Mizuki's gegege no Kitaro deserted local shops transformed into a tourist destination country-wide fame, author Dr. shopping. Kitaro said or Akuma-Kun, even until Mizuki-Sensei himself a bronze image of more than 170 city, Monster looking for everyone are addicted to it. Told city before promoted Kitaro was around 20000 people tourists now more than 2 million people, it is amazing. But Mizuki-Sensei character's charm but there is it is from I guess. Collaboration with Kitaro, shops as well as a bronze statue is just in fun city of Kitaro is littered with shops,. Stamp rally because I was running around collecting stamps and her young son (be! ')

  • It is really interesting to have seen this road. The road is all about 妖怪 and kitaro and its author. Good that it helps to rejuvenate the otherwise dead town. Nice museums to visit and new concept sho...  more »
  • 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...
