Had already visited a LOT of shrines when I got here, but there were a few things I had not seen yet. Good luck saucer throwing and coin to a tree things, plus great location in the forest, and not busy at all. Loved it

A cute hidden forested shrine on Aoshima island. Very small but a welcome cool relief from the hot sun. This refers to the shrine near Miyazaki, not the cat island shrine.

A distinct shrine on the island/penisula with great views of the rocky shoreline and sea. We walked around the perimeter of the entire island but just walking our past the shrine for a ways may prove a better use of time for tourists.

I was more interested in seeing the island rather than the shrine. It’s a good place for people to cast a wish in order to get married.

Wonderful walk next to the beach and the 'Devil's Washboard'. The shrine is beautiful and set on a little peninsula!
