× How was it?

Miyazaki Shrine ({_{, Miyazaki Jingū) is the oldest and most important shrine in the city. Dedicated to Emperor Jimmu, the mythical first emperor of Japan, it is said to have been established over 2600 years ago.

The shrine's buildings, constructed of simple, unpainted cedar, sit in the center of a large, quiet forest. Festivals and other events such as horseback archery competitions (yabusame) are held during the year on the wide path under the trees.

The Miyazaki Prefectural Museum stands just next to Miyazaki Shrine.
