This shrine is dedicated to Nariakira Shimazu, a famous feudal lord of Satsuma (Kagoshima) at the end of the Edo Period. He was a brilliant man, who made a great contribution to the modernization of Satuma after the model of the Occident.

We live in Oita but celebrates our new Year in Kagoshima every year. We go to Terukuni Jinja for Hatsumode with our kids despite the long, long lines. There you can feel you are part of the culture as you experience this event.
