Aoshima & Shrines

Experience the coastal beauty and shrines of Miyazaki and its environs during this picturesque, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Udo Jingu Shrine

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 30-minute drive to the Udo Jingu Shrine. Although Japan has plenty of shrines throughout the country, this shrine is located in a very rare place; the cave of the Udosaki Cape. Just around the cave, you can see the waves crashing against the cliff from up-close. Following your visit, re-board your coach and head towards Aoshima Island.

Aoshima Island and Aoshima Shrine

Aoshima is famous for its geological phenomenon. If the tide is low, you can see the marvellous view known as the 'Oni-no-Sentakuiwa', or 'Devil's Washboard'. Upon crossing the bridge from the mainland to Aoshima Island, proceed to the Aoshima Shrine. It is located in a subtropical jungle in the centre of the island, another unique location for a Japanese shrine.


Michinoeki Phoenix

Returning to Miyazaki, your last stop is at the Michinoeki Phoenix, a large souvenir market located near Horikiri Toge. From the observation deck here, you can see the beautiful blue ocean, Aoshima Island and its 'Devil's Washboard'. Some free time is made available here to browse the market. Since mangoes are an abundant local product, the market offers a wide array of mango-processed goods. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board the coach and commence the approximately 45-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking for approximately 1.8 miles (about 2.9 kilometres), at times over uneven, gravel and cobblestone surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and 300 steps at the Aoshima Shrine. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes, and bring sun protection and a towel from the ship.

Explore the history and traditions of the Edo Samurai period during this memorable, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Obi Castle Remains

Shochu is a Japanese spirit made from sweet potatoes and rice or wheat, and has an alcohol content of about 20-40 percent.
