A bright and sunny city with a southern resort atmosphere. Along a beautiful beach northeast of the city stands a vast international resort complex.
Miyazaki City is located in the central part of Miyazaki Prefecture and is the rail terminal city for southeastern Kyushu as well as the government and economic capital of the prefecture. Due to the mild weather, phoenix trees and palm trees can be seen everywhere, which gives the city the atmosphere of a bright southern resort. The place to see in the city is Miyazaki Shrine, built deep in the woods, with a Torii gate (shrine gate) made from simple, plain wood. It is a very unique shrine as it is built only with cedar.
