Mizuki Shigeru Road

Town Where You Can Meet GeGeGe no Kitaro and Nezumi Otoko (Mouse Man)

This is a very popular spot in Sakaiminato City – the birthplace of the manga artist Mizuki Shigeru. More than 150 bronze statues of various spirits line the area from in front of Sakaiminato Station to Honcho Arcade. This area is lit up at night, so you can experience a completely different atmosphere to that in the daytime. You will find original pictures of masterpieces, spirit dioramas and more on display in the Mizuki Shigeru Museum. The whole town is a spirit theme park. There is the healing Kappa (mythical water-dwelling creature) Fountain, Yokai (spirit) Shrine where you can try yokai omikuji (spirit fortune slips) and Yokai (spirit) Post where mail stamped with a spirit postmark is delivered.
