Miyazaki-jingu, located in the city of Miyazaki in Miyazaki Prefecture, is a shrine sacred to Japans first emperor, Jinmu. The present sanctuary was reconstructed here in 1907. The oshirafuji (white wisteria) in the shrine grounds is believed to be 600 years old, and has been designated a Natural Monument by the Japanese government. Old wisteria trees including this tree grow all over the shrine grounds. The shrine, famous for the magnificent flowering of these trees from middle to late April every year, bustles with visitors. The local people have taken great care to preserve the forest of the shrine, which is known as Jinmu-sama.'
