Mizuki Shigeru Road水木しげるロード

Street

The local nickname for the shopping arcade which extends from Sakaiminato Station to the Mizuki Shigeru Memorial Museum. The area is a central part of the book “Yokai no Machi,” a book written by manga artist Shigeru Mizuki about his hometown of Sakaiminato City. The road is lined with numerous bronze statues of “yokai,” Japanese folk monsters that were a major focus of Mizuki’s work. The station, arcade shops, police boxes, street lights, and parks in the area all have been decorated with a yokai world theme. Some of the area’s many highlights include the kappa fountain, Youkai Shrine, and Gegege no Yokai Rakuen miniature theme park. This famous tourism destination is visited by large numbers of tourists not only from within the country but also around the world.
