Kirishima Shrine (霧島神宮)

A Shinto shrine dedicated to Ninigi, a god who is part of the myth of the founding of Japan. The current main shrine building was erected in 1715, although the shrine is believed to have been founded around the sixth century on Setoo Hill between Mt. Takachihonomine and Mt. Hinotokomine. Buildings such as the main shrine and worship hall are designated Important Cultural Properties. The shrine is also famous for having been visited by Sakamoto Ryoma on his honeymoon. The grounds are renowned spot for viewing the cherry blossoms and autumn foliage. A 10-minute bus ride from Kirishima-Jingu Station on the JR Nippo Main Line.

Review of Kirishima Shrine Viewing Point

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/02/24 日本初の新婚旅行先(^^)
坂本龍馬が日本で初めて新婚旅行に行ったといわれている坂本龍馬夫妻。
その2人が訪れたのが霧島高原です。
霧島神宮展望所からはその霧島高原を見渡すことができます。
霧島神宮にも参拝した龍馬とおりょうのパネルが境内にあります。(絵柄は小山ゆうの「お-い!竜馬」♪♪)
そのパネルの先(パネルの背中側?)が展望台になっています。
広い境内ですが、龍馬とおりょうのパネルはすぐに見つかると思います。

霧島神宮に参拝する時についでに寄れる展望台。
天気が良く結構遠くまで見渡せた。そこまで長居するような場所ではなく、混雑していたがすぐに前に出てみることができた。
Reviewed:2019/08/28 見晴らしが良い
霧島神宮には見晴らしの良い展望台があります。
三の鳥居や拝殿を背にした位置にあります。
桜島や霧島連山が見渡せ、晴れていれば絶景でしょうね。
案内板によると開聞岳まで見えるとあります。
生憎の曇り空で、桜島は霞んでいて残念でした。

          Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture’s most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
