    Miyazaki Pref. Miyazakishi Aoshima
    "This small island, 1.5 kilometers in circumference, has been designated a National Natural Monument and is also purported to be the place where the Japanese legend known as Umisachi-Yamasachi took place. The Aoshima Jinja shrine, surrounded by an unusual rock formation known as the ""Devil's Washboard,"" is dedicated to the gods Hikohohodemi-no-Mikoto, Toyotama-hime-no-Mikoto, and Shiozutsu-no-Okami. The shrine is popular because it is believed to bring good luck in finding love and marriage. The island is a beautiful, untouched natural haven lush with spermatophyte and pteridophyte plants."

An unmissable highlight of Kyushu, Miyazaki prefecture satisfies nature lovers with its dramatic gorges cut out of rugged cliffs, leading into waterfalls and beaches of green-blue water popular among surfers. Takachiho Gorge in the north of the prefecture tells a tale of centuries-old Japanese mythology in a fantastic setting, allowing visitors to explore the waters by boat before heading up to the cave at the Awano Iwato Shrine, where the sun goddess was said to have hidden, plunging the world into darkness.
