Kamo Hachiman Shrine

Reviewed By Kyoto23 - Kyoto, Japan

This giant tree has been alive more than 1500 years....
You can feel mystical power from time immemorial.
Actually I didn't know this spot even though I've been to Kagoshima many times, however this spot should have been familiar with all tourists.
Also you can taste Japanese ceremonial tea in shrine cafe whose female attendance serves.
If you love the nature, must go there in Kagoshima Japan.

I always saw this waterfall from the highway and really wanted to take a closer look. It is easily accessible by car .During summer days you can have cold /nagashi soumen and admire it . On winter days you can soke in the nearby hot spring and enjoy it.

Fontana no Oka Kamo

Reviewed By NGraburn - Paris, France

We were booked in to the newly built Fontana by our relatives in nearby Kamou cho. Each luxurious bedroom has a private bath and there are also two onsen,hot spring baths - for Men and for Women. We ate a glorious dinner in the large dining room and enjoyed browsing the even larger omiyage (souvenir) shop.

Kamounobuke House

Reviewed By JH L - Seoul, South Korea

This is a samurai residence remaining. Though most houses are banned to enter, the alley of old houses are good to take photos while passing.

Tatsumonjizaka

Reviewed By JH L - Seoul, South Korea

Lots of Japaneses visit here. It's more popular after being featured by popular drama, Segodon.
A bit steep stone way may be tough for seniors. I guess it's risky when it's slippery after rain.
There are other nice spots such as Ryumon Falls, Takakura Observatory and Kinzan Bridge. Therefore, slow hiking of 3~5 hours is recommended.

Nagisa Park Aira

Reviewed By xanctum - 栃木

錦江湾沿い、重富漁港のそばにある公園。JR重富駅からも徒歩5分で行けます。錦江湾を挟んで桜島がきれいに見える雰囲気のいい公園で、複合遊具もあるので子連れで遊ぶことができます。バーベキューをしている人もおり、確かにこの眺めなら楽しいだろうなと思いました。

Yamada Triumphal Arch

Reviewed By xanctum - 栃木

日露戦争の戦勝記念として建てられた凱旋門で、くぐって階段を上っていくと招魂社があります。
アーチ式の小さな門ですが、見事な石造技術にほれぼれします。
凱旋門のある山田集落は藩政時代は地頭仮屋がおかれたところで、武家屋敷も残っていました。

Nihonichi no Kyoju Kamo no Okusu

Reviewed By JH L - Seoul, South Korea

Locating in Kamouhachiman Shrine, this is the biggest tree in Japan. Not the oldest.
- Size is really huge. I was pretty impressed to watch. Worthy of visiting only for this.
- It looked also great from the distance. There were several points to see. Take enough time in the shrine and enjoy.
- It's not that well-known. It wasn't so crowded when I visited.
- There's a fence around the tree. Touching it is not allowed.

Kamo Furusato Koryukan

Reviewed By xanctum - 栃木

公民館のような建物の中に、蒲生町出身の彫刻家・板橋一歩氏の作品が展示されています。
スポーツをしている子どもの彫像など、躍動感のある作品が多く、なかなか見ごたえがありました。
無料で見学できるので、となりの蒲生八幡神社にお参りするときに寄ってみるとよいでしょう。
