Marueda Kirishima-So

Marueda Kirishima-So is a minshuku in a quiet part of this village in the Kirishima area of Kagoshima Prefecture about ten minutes walk south of Kirishima Jingu Shrine and with views towards the Kirishima Mountains.

With a deer skull and antlers flanked by wooden masks of the Seven Lucky Gods hanging on the outside wall it seemed that this might be a little different, and I was right.

The spacious lobby was decorated in an eclectic and funky mix of large scale travel photos, traditional Japanese artifacts, and a hefty dose of 50's retro Americana.

My room was large, and unusual in its decoration, including vintage furniture.

The onsen was located in separate building next door. In the lobby there was wi-fi access.

As usual I booked sudomari, room with no meals, for 3,500 yen, but I was really hungry and the landlady didn't mind me changing to evening meal and breakfast for 6,500 yen, and I am glad I did.

The meal (see below), in a small dining room/ restaurant, was huge, and ended up consisting of 16 dishes.
