    A shrine standing along the Mizuki Shigeru Road, a popular tourism destination in Sakaiminato City, Tottori Prefecture. The shrine is dedicated to a 300 year old Japanese zelkova tree and a three meter tall block of granite yokai (Japanese folk monster) which was put into his heart and soul by manga artist Shigeru Mizuki. The grounds are filled with statues of yokai characters from Mizuki’s hit comic, “GeGeGe no Kitaro,” such as an Ittan Momen-themed torii gate and Medama Oyaji purifying fountain. The automated fortune dispenser, in which small yokai figures deliver a mikuji fortune slip, is a popular feature of the shrine.

    Tottori Pref. Sakaiminatoshi Taishoumachi 38
    This amusement center is about five minutes away on foot from Sakaiminato Station. It is located at the site of the former “Sakaiminato Kairiku Unso (Ocean and Rail)” warehouse, which featured manga artist Shigeru Mizuki’s ghost illustrations on the exterior and has now been converted into a good-luck “power spot.” The nearly 100-meter-long path inside the warehouse features exhibits on about 30 types of spirits that play tricks on humans. At the exit is a mystical stone said to repel evil, and there’s also a votive picture in the shape of Kitaro’s wooden clog and a charm said to contain the spiritual force of the Kitaro family, so visitors can pray for good luck if they wish.
