Terukuni Shrine (照国神社)

This shrine is the most popular place for hatsumode (the first shrine visit of the New Year) in Kagoshima prefecture, and Shimazu Nariakira (the 11th lord of Satsuma Domain / 島津斉彬) is enshrined here.
There is a statue of the enshrined deity after you enter the torii (a gateway at the entrance to a Shinto shrine / 鳥居 ), and there is the sacred water on the left side of the main building.
There is a narrow path which leads you to a stone which enshrines a water god, and on the path there are more things to see such as a little stone shrine, stone monuments of a mountain god and a water god and an ogre.
