Demon Slayer: A location appearing in the movie "Kimetsu no Yaiba" has become a popular spot.

Nov 11, 2020

There is a stone in Suzaka City in Nagano that resembles the stone in a scene from the world's most popular movie, "Kimetsu no Yaiba / Demon Slayer," and it is getting a lot of attention.

The name of the stone is "Dragon's Split Stone (Ryu no Wari-ishi)". The place where this stone is located has no address, so let's first go to the Susaka Sakata Post Office (45-5 Sakata, Susaka City, Nagano Prefecture 382-0026). Once there, search for "Mt. Sakata / Miharashi no Oka (Lookout Hill)" on Google Maps and drive in that direction.

The road is so narrow that only one car can pass through, as shown in the photo below, so please drive carefully.

Parking lot

It is quite difficult to find. The signboard in the photo above is a guide to the path, although it makes you wonder if you're really on the right path.:) When you see this signboard on your left, turn left and go to a slightly elevated area where there is a parking space, and walk from here.

If you look closely at the sign in the parking lot, you can see the "Dragon's Split Stone". It looks far away on this map, but it's only about a 10-15 minute walk.

 

Toilet

There is a restroom in the parking lot, but it is a pit toilet, so if you are not used to it, we recommend that you go to a convenience store to use the restroom before coming here.

Go in the direction that leads to the back of the parking lot. The path is walkable, but it may be a little difficult to walk on a poor weather day.

On the way, there is a "Lookout Hill (Miharashi no Oka)" where you can take a break and enjoy the view.

A short walk past the "Miharashi no Oka" will bring you to this sign. "110 meters to the Dragon's Split Stone."

After the sign, a short walk will lead you to a split path, one going up and one going down...:) I tried going up first, but the upper path soon came to a dead end.
Let’s take the lower path.:)

As soon as you walk along the path, you will see a rock that looks like it.:) If you come to this point, you can't go wrong.
