A Weekend in Miyazaki Prefecture

It’s a busy week here at school and at home. I got back from a whirlwind weekend in Miyazaki and am heading to Shikoku on Thursday.  Miyazaki was amazing. Here are the highlights!

Udo Shrine – a beautiful shrine built into a cliff. The shrine is dedicated to fertility and has rabbits everywhere. There is a rock a little out to sea with a dimple in the top. The shrine sells clay balls for you to throw into the dip, and if you get it in, you’ll have good luck!

Fake Easter Island. Sometimes its better not to question why.

Pizza Hut – After nine months of Japanese Pizza, all of us were looking forward to the Hut. It was a decision I later came to regret – too much Cheese! We couldn’t find the actually restaurant, but the GPS brought us to a delivery center, so we ordered some to the parking lot.

Takachiho Gorge – an unbelievably beautiful place. We went boating and on a hike that turned out too be much l0nger than we expected. Ugh.

Chicken Nanban – the famous dish from Miyazaki prefecture. Chicken with a vinegar sauce. Delicious!

I am so glad I got the chance to camp in Japan, even if it was on the most beautifully manicured lawn. Miyazaki was wonderful, and given the chance I would go back!
