Miyazaki is the birthplace of Japanese mythology. According to legend, Japan’s first Emperor was born in Hyuga (present day Miyazaki). Come to the shrine for a tour of its most sacred areas not usually open to the public, and participate in a ritual purification ceremony during which shrine maidens perform a sacred dance to the accompaniment of a dragon flute. After the tour, you can also try your hand at making a traditional Shinto straw festoon used to welcome the gods.
