Enjoy a stroll in Kirishima-Jingu Shrine in a kimono
Imagine yourself wearing a kimono and walking leisurely through the shrine believed to be the site where the grandson of the sun goddess descended in ancient days. This program, “Stroll through Kirishima-Jingu Shrine in a Kimono” is a great way to get away from your daily life and experience something completely new!
The program has been very popular among Japanese and international tourists as a great way to experience traditional Japan.
