Miyajidake Jinja is a shrine in Fukutsu City, Fukuoka Prefecture. It is a serene, mysterious place, where flowers bloom in profusion throughout the four seasons. Twice each year, in February and October, if you are lucky, you might be able see a the road to the shrine, which, awash in sunlight, extends in a straight line to the Genkai Sea. This beautiful sight is called the "Path of Light" and has carried the shrine's name throughout the country.

It seems that if you're lucky, you might be able to see the famous sight, the "Path of Light" for a few days in February and October each year! Miyajidake Jinja is said to be efficacious for better fortune, commercial prosperity, and so on. Everyone, please do visit here on pilgrimage!

Ya-deYa-de: We also went to the steps leading to the path/stairs approaching the shrine, the best spot for seeing the "光の道 (Path of Light)"! The view of the town from here is truly beautiful! Here's a picture of us sitting at a tea shop's bench on shrine precincts! May be this bench is the one that the famous Japanese idol group sat on (!?)! I recommend taking a breather here!
