× How was it?

Miyazaki ({), capital of Miyazaki Prefecture, is located on the south eastern coast of Kyushu. With one of the warmest climates on the main islands of Japan, resorts, beaches and sports facilities, Miyazaki used to be the top honeymoon spot and a popular destination with domestic travelers until the 1980s.

The city has since seen falling visitor numbers, but has recently made a comeback due to the efforts of the popular comedian Higashikokubaru Hideo, who served as the governor of Miyazaki Prefecture from 2007 to 2011. His celebrity and efforts to keep Miyazaki in the public eye, have revived the Miyazaki brand to a certain degree.

Miyazaki City is also near attractions such as Takachiho to the north and Kirishima to the southwest, which are both important sites of Japanese mythology and beautiful places to enjoy nature.
