Palm Trees in Mild Weather

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-jingu 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. Heiwadai-koen Park is northwest of the shrine. Sixty meters above sea level, the park commands a superb view of the city and the Sea of Hyuga. Northeast of the city, on Hitotsuba Beach, stands Sea Gaia, which has a golf course, tennis courts, the Miyazaki City Phoenix Zoo, and the World Convention Center Summit, which provides space for international conventions. Hotels, cottages, and condominiums are also part of the facility. There is a free shuttle bus between the facilities.
