Yokai (monster) town… Sakaiminato


The whole town is themed up to the spooky comedy manga, Gegege no Kitaro (ゲゲゲの鬼太郎). This manga series is a Japanese classic from the 1960s, drawn by Mr Shigeru Mizuki. The story line is based on a collection of Japanese folklore and local superstitions. It essentially gained cult status and hence the crazy town & train line for this manga. Yup, the manga fixtures are all PERMANENT.

The theme runs strong from the moment I set foot onto the Yonago train platform…

Still not in the mood? Drink some gegege no kitaro water?

Anyways, time to board the train…

Not every train comes with a character visit. Check the local schedule if you are really keen. I can’t find the info online at all. There are local pamphlet when you’re in the area. They do come in English, Chinese and Korean.
