Miyazaki Prefecture is located on the eastern coast of the island of Kyushu, surrounded by the Pacific Ocean to the south and east, it is one of only two locations on Earth where the fungus "Chorioactis geaster" is found. If you drive along the coast, there are subtropical vistas that seem like they’re not from Japan. The wonders of Miyazaki’s natural beauty can be found in the gorgeous sights of Takachiho Gorge and the hugely-popular Aoshima island.
