I really loved the atmosphere of this shrine. It is very unique but also typical for southern area.. For example, the trees around the shrine are tropical ones.. which is I think pretty rare..

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:)

It's very quiet - made us hush hush when we walked in. Not very touristic, which I liked. You can walk to/from the museum and it's a nice stroll in the woods
