With All Five Senses, Experience the Sunny Weather, the Greenery of Nature, and the Majesty of the Ocean

Miyazaki Prefecture is located in the southeast of Kyushu, between the beautiful waters of the Pacific and the Kyushu and Kirishima mountain ranges. The prefecture has a land area of 7,735 km2, of which 84.3% is forests and farmland, and 12% is natural parks, making it truly a paradise of natural scenery. The average annual temperature, daylight hours, and sunny days are #1 in Japan. It is noted for its warm climate year-round, to the point that it is known as the Sunshine Zone of Japan. Subtropical plants can be found here and there, and the townscape itself has the feel of a South Pacific resort. In recent years it has also seen a boom in professional baseball and soccer camps, so when the season rolls around a large number of people throng here to see the players. Additionally, it is famous as a mecca of surfing, even hosting world tournaments. Miyazaki has roughly 400 km of beaches from north to south, and surfing spots of national pedigree can be found all over. With a wide range in variations of waves, our prefecture is well-loved by surfers of all skills levels, from absolute beginners to seasoned professionals.
We have a great many amazing natural scenes for you to enjoy, which are a must for any major sightseeing destination. The Takachiho Gorge, a scenic spot on the Gokase River formed by lava flow from Mt. Aso, Aoshima Island, which is surrounded by strangely shaped rocks called “the Devil’s Washboard,” and Sun Messe Nichinan where huge moai statues stand behind the vast sea: all are popular photo spots. Miyazaki is also the origin of Japanese civilization, as passed down in Japanese mythology. Our prefecture is home to a great many places associated with the myths and legends recorded in the Kojiki and Nihon-Shoki, Japan’s oldest historical chronicles that date to the early 8th century. Our city is filled with spots of spiritual splendor. Such locations include Eda Shrine, which is dedicated to Izanagi and Izanami, the divine couple who legend tells created the islands of Japan, Amano Iwato Shrine, wherein lies the holy cave where the sun goddess Amaterasu Omikami hid herself away, and Miyazaki Shrine, which is dedicated to Japan’s first heavenly sovereign, Emperor Jimmu. Even today, Miyazaki is alive with the legends of primeval gods. It has been dubbed “the hometown of Japan” due to its close connection with the myths and legends of Japan’s founding.
