Kyushu Travel Guide

Miyazaki Shrine


Miyazaki Shrine is the oldest and most important shrine in the city.

Dedicated to Emperor Jimmu, the mythical first emperor of Japan, it is said to have been

established over 2600 years ago.


The shrine’s buildings, constructed of simple, unpainted cedar, sit in the center of a large,

quiet forest.


Festivals and other events such as horseback archery competitions (yabusame) are held

during the year on the wide path under the trees.
