Are you looking for a beautiful and peaceful destination for your next vacation? Look no further than Hyuuga City in Miyazaki prefecture. Our city is home to some of Japan’s most beautiful beaches, including Okuragahama Beach, which has been selected as one of the country’s 100 best beaches. With its white sand and green pines, it’s a popular spot for surfing and other marine activities.
But that’s not all Hyuuga City has to offer. We also have the “Sea-cruz” Where Wishes Come True, a spot where the sea has worn the rocks into the shape of a cross. It is said that praying here will make your wishes come true.
We also have the 70 m-high Umagase cliff, which offers a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean. And don’t miss Hososhima Lighthouse, which was built in 1910 and reconstructed in 1941. It stands at approximately 100 m above sea level and offers a great view of the surrounding area.
Hyuuga City is also home to Mihokogaura Beach, which is perfect for families with children due to its calm waves. It’s also a great spot for camping and stand up paddle surfing (SUP). And don’t forget about Isegahama Beach, which has been selected as one of Japan’s 100 best beaches.
But that’s not all. Our city is also home to Omi Shrine, which is known as “Hyuga’s Ise Shrine.” It is a powerful spot famous for its dragon legend and the Sazareishi stones that appear in the lyrics of the Japanese national anthem.
We also have Hyugashi Station, which is known for its outstanding design and unique architectural style. In 2008, it became the first Japanese winner of a Brunel Award in the station building category. The building is made of Japanese cedar and has a pleasant wood scent.
And don’t forget about the Mimitsu Historical District. This area has preserved the historical appearance of the late Edo period when shipping agencies lined the streets. The old Japanese houses, which are now used as museums and cafes, are a reminder of the area’s prosperous days.
So come and visit Hyuuga City for a peaceful and memorable vacation. You won’t be disappointed. And be sure to try some of our delicious local cuisine, including tonkatsu at Fujikatsu Hyuuga and tasty naan with Indian curry at Muna.
