Miyazaki Shinto Shrine, Miyazaki
(4/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It is the shrine that enshrines the first emperor, jimmu Tenno deities. It was a very solemn shrine. Stopped the car at the parking lot of the cultural center was the approach, it was good. In bright colors of vermilion Torii or shrine, not with relaxing wood color,
