Living in Japan: Swimming in Shingu Kirinomori

There is a town in Shikoku, Japan called Shingu or possibly Kirinomori. Well, the park we went to was called Kiri mo mori and it was lovely. Sometimes it is hard to tell where you are in Japan- they name the Ken, then the “big” town, then the little town inside of it, then the neighborhood, then where you actually are. So in all likelyhood we were in both Kirinomori and Shingu at the same time.

What is Kirinomori? It is a lovely little park and collection of museum, gift shop, and guide center. There is also a “rocking buddha” as Derek put it. It is a huge buddha statue which is making the “rock on” sign with its hands. Very funny. I suppose there is probably a deep Japanese meaning to that symbol, but as with most traditional signage, it was all in Kanji and we couldn’t be arsed to attempt a translation.

Anyway, the highlight of Kirinomori is the stream. Swimming is allowed and many people go there on the weekends, but if you go upstream you can get away from the major groups and get some peace. It is beautiful.

And the traditional Kirinomori omiyage is a daifuku filled with fresh cream. It is matcha on the outside, then azuki, then cream. YUM. Highly recommended.

    So nice of you to feature this little spot that I haven’t heard before. It looks peaceful and so out of the hustle and bustle of the city. I wish I could go there, but unfortunately I haven’t even been out of my own country yet. By the way, they really drew that picture if a teddy on your coffee? How creative!

    I’ve never been to Japan, but I might just have to add it to my bucket list of places to go! It looks absolutely gorgeous there, and that creamy type drink you had looks delicious! I wonder if the water was cold? I would love to swim in it!
