Miyazaki Shinto Shrine, Miyazaki

One of the oldest shrines in the region, Miyazaki Shinto Shrine tells a story of the foundation of Japan. Quiet and peaceful, the site occupies 26 hectares (64 acres) in the city. A forest that boasts a 600-year-old white wisteria surrounds the shrine, which is built entirely of dark, unpainted cedar. The shrine is known as a good place to pray for safe childbirth and protection against misfortune. Exquisite costumed ceremonies dedicated the first emperor of Japan and traditional Japanese mounted archery competitions (held seasonally) bring the area's history to life. Do not miss restored the old wooden houses behind the shrine. Our Miyazaki tour planner makes visiting Miyazaki Shinto Shrine and other Miyazaki attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

    In growing trees and bushes stood a majestic shrine. For better or worse tourist oriented not, slowly and quietly.

    It is to be expected. Chrysanthemum crest. It seems a little walk to the shrine, but have very dignified air, bracing feeling. You are a nokyo-sho.

    Miyazaki Station 2.5 km or so away, so while running and visited. (May bus. ) Here is truly clear air. In the traditional atmosphere, will be a welcome antidote.

    Very average big shrine. Its symbolic is specially as it's a "jingu", and not a usual "jinja" but actually nothing different from any other in a atheist point of view. The buildings are clean and well maintained, but the park is a bit wasteland-ish.
