Youkai Shrine (妖怪神社)

3.5

Amusement Park / Theme Park

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. The shrine also sells popular souvenirs such as yokai ema votive tablets, protective charms, and protective seals.

Reviewed:2016/09/28 Its just a small anime shrine
This shrine features Gegege-No-Kitaro, and some characters of the anime were used as monuments.
Reviewed:2020/04/25 妖怪がご神体、なのでしょう
神社として、鳥居もあります。本殿らしき建物、ご神体もあるように見えます。鳥居の脇に目玉がぐるぐると回転しています。日本の神様はなんでもありですから、妖怪がご神体であっても不思議はないかもしれません。それなりの御利益もあるのでしょう。

          Tottori prefecture is Japanese seasonal diversity at its best: Huge sand dunes cover the north coast, making for the perfect summer beach trip complete with the unexpected addition of camels; November brings the delectable snow crab, while winter around Mount Daisen, the Chugoku region’s highest mountain, promises snow sports and magical views.
