4.2
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in 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.

  • Recommend a ride from the more frequently if you ride the bus, Miyagi transportation Tachibana-Dori branch before. About 10 minutes (170 yen) from the Miyazaki Shinto shrine. Miyazaki station there are very few numbers. "Shrine" is that from the ancient ties with the Imperial shrine, or shrine is dedicated to the Emperor (Meiji Jingu-HP). Main shrine here is God Japan ban over Gen tout (Emperor jimmu). Foundation year unknown. The stately shrine ago about the large Imperial Chrysanthemum Crest kando proceeded along the entrance path in the Woods, just to worship the emperor. Visited because it was a weekday morning or even fewer visitors, but the solemn atmosphere was more strongly felt. Minka-en, House in Miyazaki Prefecture and Miyazaki Prefecture synthesis Museum old houses on the grounds, so observing during the visits to the shrine.

  • Kenmei Bandai Dragon Emperor jimmu's grandson was opened and that is became a present appearance seems to be 0/1907. Made after the Meiji Shrine (Meiji-Jingu, Kashihara-Jingu Shrine) and somehow similar atmosphere. It stretches to just one shrine was initially forest deep green Grove forest. And I think being crowned Emperor jinmu consisting in 22 years to 2700 and I think something better.

  • Can feel the atmosphere of Kirishima-Jingu Shrine, but I personally like Kirishima Jingu Shrine, so is second favorite shrine. Nice little trees are cut down and giving a sense of openness and cleanliness.
