    This is a villa of the Shimazu family built by Mitsuhisa Shimazu, the 19th head of the family, in 1658. Nariakira Shimazu, the 28th head, also loved it immensely, and it attracted many people, such as Atsuhime, the wife of the 13th Tokugawa shogun. You can enjoy a magnificent view that poses Sakurajima and Kinko Bay as if they were miniatures in a landscape garden. Seasonal flowers bloom in the vast garden of approximately 50,000m2, and there are numerous historic sites that tell the history of the Shimazu family. The park was registered as a World Cultural Heritage Site in 2015 as a "Heritage of the Industrial Revolution in Meiji-era Japan."

    The largest downtown area in Kagoshima, Temmonkan Street, was named after Meijikan (aka Temmonkan), a facility built in 1779 by Shigehide Shimazu, who positively adopted many facets of European civilization, in order to conduct astronomical observations and make calendars. These calendars are called Satsuma calendars, and they were intended to increase the production of agricultural goods through timely cropping. The arcade is home to cafés, restaurants, and boutiques, including restaurants of local cuisine and souvenir shops, and it is the most popular downtown area in southern Kyushu.

    The deity enshrined here is Nariakira, the 28th head of the Shimazu family. In 1863, the Emperor bestowed on him the posthumous name of Terukuni Daimyojin, and a shrine was built on the ruins of Nanzen-in the following year, becoming the Terukuni Shrine. The shrine and its treasures were burned down in the Satsuma Rebellion in 1877 and reconstructed in 1882, but they were again devastated by war in 1945, and reconstructed in 1958. Now, the shrine is built of reinforced concrete. The torii gate at the entrance was built in 1929, commemorating the coronation of the Emperor in 1928, and is quite large, with a height of 19.8m. Many worshipers visit the Terukuni Shrine as a place enshrining Nariakira Shimazu.
