#4 of 42 in Historic Sites in Miyazaki Prefecture
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • Japan is a human child is born when a gentleman stopped by the consciousness of Chi. Want to pray for the child's health. The price is 5000 yen. Visit on weekdays and almost speechless. The expression of only 10 minutes, taking chances and it was a little hard to be. Former Japan not in. .. They tend to be quite big, historic shrine is meaningful. Beautiful looks with this place gets from Miyazaki.

  • Visit the trip partly in. Located in the city, surrounded by trees, regardless of fault or clean air. Around the grounds alone healed. Appears occasionally doing weddings. Also a Folklore Museum is surprisingly slow just wasting my time. The visit is really easy access of the town went to the Miyazaki.

  • Walked from the JR station. I think will feel going into the Woods and pass through the gate, to Japan with into DW. So was quiet and Holy air about the shrine.

  • Was great - well kept and when I went was no one around which made it even better 🙂
  • Quite ordinary shrine with nice garden surrounding it. 😊
  • newly renovated - must see / 1st emperor of japan
  • 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.
  • Nice but not so special nothing crazy
