This ancient Shrine is well worth a visit if you're in Miyazaki. It's such a beautiful and peaceful place to visit and wander around the gardens. If you're lucky you may even see a traditional wedding here too:)

This is a rather quiet shrine, and not that touristic. Worth visiting in early morning when there is even less people. After visiting the front yards of the main structure (you can't go beyond), take a stroll to the backyard to the right of the...More
