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 shrine has a pleasant park. The grounds are well maintained and serenely laid out. Be sure to visit the Prefectural Museum next door if you're in this area.

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
