When people go to Miyazaki's Udo Jingu, most tend to go the main shrine. But if you veer off to the left before you get to the main shrine, there are a number of smaller shrines to view and forest paths you can take on your own adventure. One of them leads to a great little cave shrine where uncrowded, spiritual bliss awaits. There is a bit of climbing involved, but most reasonably fit people can manage it with ease. Enjoy this hidden gem and listen as the waves wash across the rocks. Serenity now!

Hi, my name is Iain. I was born in Sydney, developed through adventures round Asia and Europe, and refined and settled in Miyazaki, Japan. Through the Japan Travel site and my own website at https://www.iainstanley.com I try to show people what a beautiful place Miyazaki is. You have to look hard on a map to find Miyazaki, but if you do find it, you'll soon realise it's a world away from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo. Majestic mountains, stunning seascapes, verdant valleys, serene swimming holes and many more hidden treasures. Through the photos you see on this site I hope that you get an insight into how beautiful a place it really is here. If you have any questions, or you'd like to know more about this well-kept secret, then send me a message, and I'll be happy to discuss anything you like. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the articles I write and the views that my photos provide!! And if you'd like to follow me on Instagram, come say hi @iain_stanley.
