JP 2018 March Sakura Kirishima

Kirishima Jingu (霧島神宮)

It was first established in the 7th century AD though due to multiple eruptions of nearby Kirishima volcanoes it had been destroyed and rebuilt. The current site was built in 18th century.

Sakura was in full bloom while locals lined up to offer their worships in the Jingu.

In the nearby park on the hillside sakura were blooming as well, stopped by Maruo-no-taki (waterfall) before reaching Kirishima onsen hotel. Due to fallen rocks it could only be observed from a distance.
