Speaking of the Power Spot of Kagoshima, one would first think of Kirishima Shrine. Backed by the Takachihomine peak, the Kirishima Shrine worships the Niniginomikoto, grandchild of the Amaterasu Goddess, in the ancient legend of Tenson Kourin (Descending of the Heavenly Grandchild). Built in the 6th century, this shrine has a very long history. The shrine has great beauty and dignity, and a mysterious atmosphere that awes all its visitors.

Walking past the pilgrimage path covered in lush greenery and aged cedar trees, the sophisticated vermilion structure of the shrine appears before you. Just by being there, one can feel his/her heart being cleansed.
