Review of Shitogo Banyan Tree

Reviewed:2016/01/03 Walking trees
I was told that those trees actually can move and in fact I read about it later on and it seems they can. Worth to visit and get some info about it. In winter months entrance is free coz nobody there...
Reviewed:2014/08/07 Worth a stop if you are in the area
I nice little stroll among some really cool trees. Take the fan they give you as you enter. You will need it for the mosquitos.

          Kagoshima Main Areas


          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ーshochu.
