This shrine is located inside a big cave at waterfront connected with entrance with a long staircase which makes this shrine worth visiting.

Udo shrine is in inconvenient location and the only way to get to the shrine is taking a bus. It is worth to go, and bus ride is easy.

Out of all the shrines we saw this trip, this was a great highlight. The condition is very well kept despite it being right next to the sea. Beautiful view and a beautiful shrine. We stayed at the outskirts of Miyazaki but it was worth the detour to see it!

There are so many reasons to make this trip! First, it's just stunning in every direction. The drive down the coast is reason enough. I believe we parked by the original entrance, which required us to walk many steps up and around the mountain to access the shrine. I enjoyed the walk, which took us through a small cemetery for monks, but other's might want to find the closer entrance.

The entrance to the shrine is pretty spectacular with the sea splashing against the beautiful rock structures and set against the red gates. Just before the entrance to the cave that houses the shrine is a special rock with a hole in it. You can purchase small stones to throw. If your stone lands in the roped off area, it is considered good luck for your family... better yet if your stone lands directly in the hole in the rock. It's good fun, especially if you have kids (or competitive friends).

The shrine is lovely, but really it's about wandering through the premises and enjoying the natural beauty.

I'm not a big shrine guy, but the striking location on seaside cliffs makes Udo Shrine well worth a visit. Oddly shaped rock outcroppings complete the mystical setting.

This shrine is near the sea and there are many rocks erosion by the sea water! The shrine is nice but a bit far ! Public transport can reach the place but the schedule suck if you are rush planner !

To reach the shrine you must climb many steps, walk through a tunnel and climb even more steps. Therefore it may be inaccessible to some. However the journey is worth as we were met with a beautiful shrine by the ocean. You can also buy a set of stones to throw into a hole in a rock that looks like a turtle. It is said that if any of your stones manages to land in the hole you will have good luck.

Unfortunately we decided to visit on New Years Day which turned out to be a bit of a mistake as it is a place were locals choose to make their first shrine visit of the year. Once in the one way queuing system we couldn't change our minds. The queue was almost unmoving for ages as we crawled uphill around hairpin bends. However it was eventually worth it as the shrine is stunning.

A beautiful Shrine built on a cliff by the ocean. If travel by public bus, do take note that there is lots of steps and takes about 15 mins to the main entrance of the shrine. Put on your most comfortable pair of shoes if you are here. However, the moment you reach the entrance, the view is spectacular and beautiful. The cliff overlooks the blue ocean. Once you reach the main Shrine, there is a place that you can purchase some stones to throw into a rock hole below for good luck. The main Shrine is built inside a cave which looks amazing.

Overall, its a must visit place if you are around this area. The view surrounding the Shrine is amazing and lots of photo spots.

Food, drinks and souvenir are easily available around the Shrine entrance.
