We traveled on the Kitaro Family train from Yanago. The train is covered in cartoon characters and gets you ready for the characters of Shigeru Mizuki that you will find along this street in Sakaiminato. The road is a really interesting and fun place to walk along. There are plenty of photo opportunities including with various costumed characters. We had... More

The characters are amazing although not an "expert" on the genre it is worth a visit. It was a fun and funny experience. The whole area is very nice. There are many bars and shops to visit if the weather is too hot or raining.. I went in rainy season but very little rain on the day I was walking... More

The road is a really interesting and fun place to walk along. We started at the station where there is a huge mural on the wall & then wandered down through the town. Every few metres you will see another yokai (spirit monster) created by Shigeru Mizuki. There are plenty of photo opportunities. On the day our cruise ship (Sun... More

Fans of youkai--or fans of classic manga--will enjoy the atmosphere, the characters are anywhere and everywhere. Lots of restaurants and gift shops (or normal barber shops and such) find clever ways to incorporate the theme, and there are local street food vendors and potters as well. If youkai, manga, and folklore aren't your thing, however, you might jusy find it... More

I've never been much of an anime follower, but this town has a certain energy about it. Mixed in with all the anime shops are lots of fun arts & crafts shops, local seafood stands and funny statues lining the streets. Sakaiminato is an active fishing port, is is well known for snagging some amazing tuna (まぐろ) pronounced maguro. I... More

Obviously, if you end up in Sakaiminato, you know about Shigeru Mizuki and Gegege no Kitaro. Mizuki is a famous manga artist and Kitaro is his most enduring character. Mizuki Shigeru Road is a calvalcade of creepy creatures. Everything in this town is Yokai themed. Even the taxis have eyeball lights on their rooves. The train from Yonago is a... More
