Located in a natural cave facing the Sea of Hyuga, Udo-jingu is a shrine where one must descend a set of stairs to worship, which is quite rare in Japan. The path to the the main hall, painted red, is lined with strange rock formations and reefs, formed by the splashing of the waves of the Pacific ocean against its surface. Visitors come to this area to take photos of this spot. Under the main hall, there is a spirit stone, called "kameishi (turtle rock),” where luck balls can be thrown to predict the future.
