I would like to share our trip to Takachiho gorge in Miyazaki Prefecture this time.
Takachiho Gorge in Miyazaki
Takachiho Town is in Northern Miyazaki, about 2-hour drive from Miyazaki City, considered one of Miyazaki’s most popular sightseeing spots. It is said this is made by volcanic ash and rocks from Mt. Aso that erupted long ago.
There are rental boats available until 16:00 but they are limited. You would have to come in very early (no reservation accepted) especially during the holidays. The day we visited, it was already full for the rest of the day! (the last person would have to wait for 3-4 hours still!). Well, we still could take nice photos without being on a boat!
Hello world. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to share our trip to Miyazaki Udo Shrine in Nichinan City.
Miyazaki Udo Jingu Shrine in Nichinan City
Nichinan is a small city in Southern Miyazaki Prefecture with population of about 50,000, but don’t underestimate. There are a bunch of cool places to visit like Miyazaki Udo-jingu Shrine. Believe it or not, this is inside the cave! It’s like a half-hour drive from central Nichinan.
OK, let’s go check it.
Walk through the entrance gate and there’s a path towards the shrine. Basically it’s admission-free (if you would like, there’s a donation box near by).
Here is a nice cafe around the entrance gate. The best location for your thirst! (especially in summer) However, a little crowded and chairs are few. We had to stand at the table like at a bar. Well, no big deal.
It’s got a souvenir store next door. It may be good for checking out after sipping a drink.
