Miyazaki Shrine, Miyazaki

(4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
One of the oldest shrines in the region, Miyazaki 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 Shrine and other Miyazaki attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Every time I go on a business trip has enjoyed a walk in the morning, but in this Miyazaki shrine we walk course. It was a solemn shrine ordered housing until the second Torii Torii station stay, one way 2.5 km or so of course was that, in the lead from a Torii of two. Seen from the shrine main shrine is a landscape so forget that great city.
