"Miyazaki's Countryside" ?
Miyazaki prefecture lies at the southeastern tip of Kyushu, the southernmost island of Japan. Its warm southerly climate and magnificent nature have made it particularly hospitable to human communities since long ago. On this website, we want to introduce the prefecture's unique natural sights, culture, and history, especially sites that have been recognized by global organizations such as UNESCO and the UN. We hope you will visit to experience these world-renowned attractions and the feeling of the good old Japanese countryside.
