  • It is a wonderful valley in front of Kirishima Jingu Shrine. I stopped by before heading to Kirishima Jingu Shrine. It is a place where there is 1800m when all walks, but the pillar-like lava columnar passage is the most interesting thing, so I went to see it. There is a parking lot, but it might be a little hard to find. Looking at the Otorii of Kirishima Jingu Shrine in front of you, there is kirishima bridge which hangs on the Kirishima River as soon as you go to the intersection in front of the tourist information center on the left side of the road. Just off the bridge, there is a parking lot entrance to the right under the bridge. It is small, but it arrives at the parking lot soon.  When you go down the stairs from the parking lot, you will find a tour of Kirishima Jinsui, which is about 200 m long and you will reach the spectacular view of the columnar lava columnar passage. Columnar nodes are pentagonal or hexagonal columnar cracks developed in rocks, caused by the shrinkage of the volume associated with the solidcoolation of magma. It's like a work of art created by nature. It was very impressive. Not only the columnar sorority, but also the beautiful babbling of the Kirishima River and the natural scenery of the tour path were wonderful. I felt something sacred only in the river flowing from the direction of Kirishima Jingu.
