Kumamoto Onsen trip#3 the place better go if going to Kurokawa onsen


When you go to Kurokawa onsen most of the people will pass Aso city.

If you like temple or shrine or pilgrimage to site used for movie or want to experience different temple from what you know, I guess better to go here.

This time I’m introducing about Kamishikimi Kumamo Imasu temple.

I also wrote other sightseeing places during this Kumamoto Onsen trip so please review if you have a time.


“Kamishikimi Kumano Imasu shrine” hot topic on SNS as entrance to a mysterious different world

At first I went to Kamishikimi Kumano Imasu shrine. Imasu mean exist in Japanese.

From the name also you can feel something attract you.

This place was also known as the model of the place for “Natsume’s book of friend” movie . Movie title is “Hotarubi no morie”.

Nearly 100 lanterns are lined up, and because it is in the mountains which cause not exposed to direct sunlight you can feel something different.

That kind of different environment intract the people and at SNS it was very popular and called “Entrance to a mysterious different world”.
