Walking on Drift Ice
A hot-spring village offering varied vistas of fall foliage
Kirishima Jingu Onsenkyo is distinguished by the natural beauty of its setting, framed by the towering Kirishima mountain range. Kirishima Jingu, a Shinto shrine dedicated to Ninigi-no-Motoko, a leading character in Japan's own creation myth, is also a popular leaf-peeping spot. The compelling dignity of the shrine, the beauty of the natural setting and the comfort of the spa's healing waters are pleasures to be savored to the full.
