Amano Iwato Shrine in Miyazaki Prefecture is a shrine dedicated to the sun goddess Amaterasu. Located above the picturesque Amano Iwato gorge, the shrine's location next to Amano Iwato cave is pivotal to the origin story of Amaterasu. According to Japanese folklore, the Amano Iwato cave is where the goddess Amaterasu hid after a battle with her brother, which caused the world to go into darkness without her light. This is one of the most famous legends in Japan.
