Seasonal events, an abundance of nature, and the much spoken about scenery… There is just so much to see!

"Miyajidake Jinja (宮地嶽神社)" is a shrine that is located in Fukutsu City, Fukuoka Prefecture and has a history stretching back around 1,700 years. The honden (main hall) is a great spectacle, but there is actually a total of 8 shrines located inside the grounds, which together make up the popular "Oku no Miya Hachisha Meguri" (practice of visiting all 8 shrines).

And if you visit Miyajidake Jinya, make sure you also take in the stunning view of the stone steps that lead to the road approaching below. The image of the sun setting over the sea and the light stretching unbroken from the shrine down to the road is famous all over the country as the "Hikari no Michi" (Path of Light).

The shimenawa rope that adorns the front of the honden (main shrine) is one of the biggest in Japan!
