Udo Shrine



Beautiful and exciting Shine. Udo Shrine is a Shinto shrine in the cave of the cliff side

facing the Pacific Ocean. It is located about 35 km south of Miyazaki city. In legend,

a goddess of sea built a hut to give birth to a great god here. Then it is said that Empress

Suiko (554-628) built the shrine there.

The priest of Tendai Buddhism built a Buddhist temple in 782, on the order of Emperor Kanmu.

In the middle ages, this area had been the training place for mountain priests because of the

steep rocky cliffs.
