Kirishima Royal Hotel, with its brilliant white structure, stands in stunning contrast to the lush green environs all around. The Kirishima area provides an awe-inspiring mix of history and natural splendor. Heading the list is Kirishima Shrine, home of the mythical descent of the grandson of the Sun Goddess onto Mt. Takachiho, and a focal hub of respect for Shinto deities to this day. Another inspiring spot is Maruo Falls, where the flows from Miike, the largest crater lake in the Kirishima mountain chain, blend with local hot spring water to form a single united cascade. There's plenty of stimulation for the sports-minded guest too, such as Takachiho Country Club wrapped in the vast natural surroundings of Kirishima Yaku National Park, 12 all-weather tennis courts, a multipurpose athletic ground and other outstanding facilities. There are also opportunities to experience local performing arts such as the "Nine Spirits Masked Drumming," or enjoy classical performances at the Miyama Concert Hall. "Pick-your-own-fruit farms" offer blueberries in the summer, "kaki" permissions in the fall and other tasty harvest treats. Settle back for a full measure of vacation paradise, using the Kirishima Royal Hotel as the base camp to access your every resort wish.
