Museum / Science Museum

Japan’s first wax figure museum dedicated to Japanese myths located on the grounds of Aoshima Jinja. The museum presents 12 segments from Japanese myths in an easy to understand way using 30 wax figures, including the descent of the sun goddess; the story “Yamasachihiko, Umisahihiko,” which relates to the deities the shrine is dedicated to; and the conquest of Japan by Emperor Jinmu. The museum also displays wax figures of the Seven Gods of Fortune and former Yomiuri Giants baseball coach Shigeo Nagashima, who frequently went camping in Miyazaki.

Reviewed:2020/03/18 青島神社境内の蝋人形館
青島の中心的な場所である青島神社の境内にある小さな施設で、最初は社務所化と思ったのですが、有料の施設でした。隣に茶房「檳榔樹(びろうじゅ?)」があり、甘乳蘇(かんにゅうそ)と言う乳製品を販売してました。

青島神社の境内で参道に進む途中の左側のコンクリートの建物です。

天照大御神から始まる日本建国の神話を蝋人形で視覚的にも分かり易く説明してます。

拝観料大人600円がもう少し安かったら皆さん入館するんでしょうが…
Reviewed:2018/02/08 蝋人形の神話展示館
青島神社の本殿手前左側にありました。受付には人がいないで「ベルをならしてください」とあるので鳴らすと前の建物からおじさんが来ました。入場料を払って中を見学しましたが、蝋人形で海幸・山幸などの神話の世界を展示しているものでした。入場料600円ですし、雨が降ったりしたときに雨宿りついでに来るような場所かなと思いました。

          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.
