SpotShigeru Mizuki

Cartoonist Mizuki Shigeru, who produced the famous manga comic "GeGeGe no Kitaro," was born in Sakaiminato, Tottori Prefecture. Surrounded by lovely natural scenery, bronze statues of "yokai" ?characters from Mizuki's manga, such as Kitaro and Nezumi Otoko (Rat man), stand on Kitaro Street in a rural town invoking the atmosphere of the 1960s when these manga first became a big hit in Japan.
