The approach to Aburatsu
Got the bus from Aburatsu to Aoshima – lovely drive along the coast. Miyazaki seems to have a microclimate – lots of palm trees around and they grow lots of tropical fruits – renowned for mangoes.
The boardwalk to Aoshima island
Aoshima shrine is supposed to give divine blessings to those who want to get married so this is dedicated to Charlotte and Jerome 😘
The giant’s washboard
Then back on the bus to Udo Jingu – a gorgeous shrine right on the coast
