Why In Such A Place!? The Main Shrine Built In The Cavern

Udo Shrine is located in Nichinan city, south of Miyazaki. Its main shrine is built in the rock cavern opened in the middle of the cliff facing the Sea of Hyuga. According to a Japanese myth, Toyotama Princess gave birth to the deity in this cavern, so the shrine has divine grace for easy delivery and child care.

Cliff Standing Shrine With Impressive Scenery

I visited Udo Shrine in early morning, and I noticed that this shrine must be one of the most scenic ones in Japan. The scenery of the cliffs and shrine silhouetted by the sun rising from the Pacific Ocean, was so impressive that I could feel refreshed!
Access: Bus is available from Miyazaki Airport and stations. Parkin area is available.
