Aoshima Shrine, Miyazaki
(4.1/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Soak up the reverential atmosphere and pleasant scenery at Aoshima Shrine, a Shinto shrine occupying an attractive spot in the jungle of the island's interior. Thought to have been enshrined in 820 CE, the shrine has become known for providing good fortune in marriage, with young couples arriving here to ask for luck in the years ahead. The shrine's buildings have been rebuilt numerous times over the years, though its bright and bold coloration today works particularly well with the surrounding jungle plant life.

  • Because it was a cloudless blue sky without a beautiful views of all. I think that P is confusing. Qingdao Marathon day was regulated road, but wasn't gridlocked.

  • Beautiful shrine. Good place for a trip with scenic view of the Pacific, good beach, can do surfing as well..
  • Quite unusual setting for a shrine, surrounded by palm trees in the middle of a sandy island. Great place for a date or family trip.
  • This is, without a doubt, one of the most magical and wonderful places in Japan. From the fresh pineapple you can buy from the vendors on the street, to the mango soft cream, to the lovely botanical gardens, the beach, and the island itself, you really cannot go wrong. Added bonus: it's amazing year 'round, but wear a hat and a muffler in the winter, because the winds are strong!
  • Beautiful small island linked by a bridge to Kyushu. The base of the island is a very unique layered and crooked rock formation called "devil's washboard". There is a very thin and long touristic beach on the shore of the Kyushu side. Nothing except trees sand and a shrine on aoshima island. It's a pure scenery place. Try to be there for the sunset.
  • Worth a visit
