Review of Kirishima Mingeimura

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/08/16 無料なのに見応え有り。
☆霧島神宮入り口を降りて右手にあります。無料なのに霧島九面や屋久杉で出来たテーブルや仏像等色々あって見応えがあります。

中に入ると焼き物や火山灰ガラス、置物等のお土産も売っています。
Reviewed:2019/02/11 お手頃価格の焼物
霧島神宮へ行かれるなら、ぜひ立ち寄りたいスポットです。展示品と思いきや、高級商品の中には、屋久杉のお仏壇4,000万円もありビックリ!一方、普段使いの龍神焼のお皿などはお手頃価格で販売されています。私は葉の形をした大皿を購入しました。屋久杉の商品もたくさんあり、屋久杉の櫛も購入しました。つげの櫛は高価ですが、屋久杉の櫛は良心的な価格です。お店の方に丁寧に説明していただき、勉強にもなりました。
Reviewed:2018/11/20 建物自体も興味深いです。
建物が歴史的な建造物で妙味深いです。中に入るとすぐ展示コーナーがあって、その先にお土産屋さんがあります。その先にも見学できる部屋があり、建物見学でも楽しめます。入館も無料なので、霧島に行ったら立ち寄りたいスポットの一つです。

          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.
