  • It is a 10-minute walk along the Iwado River from Teniwado Shrine, which is located in Takachiho-cho, Miyazaki Prefecture. There was a torii and a shrine in the cave, and it was like a shrine. Because it is a mysterious place, it is a place to stop by in Takachiho sightseeing.

  • I walked unexpectedly from Teniwado Shrine. It was cold when going down, and the flow of the river was fast and was very beautiful. Tianangawa Shrine was mysterious in the cave. There were a lot of stones piled up around me, and when I asked the staff of the foreign tour, I could not do it without a stone even though the wish would come true with a wish.
