This shrine is in the middle of a tropical forest with a sea view! Located in the middle of Devil’s washboard in Miyazaki, JapanIsn’t the entrance walk is a class act? Such a stunning setting!Inline with other shrines in Japan, they have lots of charms to offer. Some of their charms requires one to ‘work’ for them e.g. bow & arrow, dice, fishing etc. My hubby managed to win a ‘love’ charm via bow & arrow. Too bad for him, he already has me 😛This is literately the only ‘building’ on the island! And a tropical one too.
How is that for a walk to do some prayers? It’s a tropical forest / spiritual experience all at once. I love this place! There’s hardly anyone there as well. So tranquil 😀 Highly recommend visiting here!!
