The Torch Relay in Miyazaki will start in the northern town of Takachiho, and will visit the city of Hyuga, where Oomi Shrine sits at the edge of a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, and journey through the central part of the prefecture, making its way to the city of Miyazaki where a celebration will take place at the end of the first day. On the second day, the Torch Relay will leave from the city of Miyazaki, travelling across the southwestern part of the prefecture, arriving in the city of Ebino for a celebration.

The highlights of the Torch Relay in Miyazaki will include: Takachiho Shrine, the head of the 88 Takachiho-kyo shrines that was built 1900 years ago; Aoshima Island in the city of Miyazaki, featuring many subtropical plants and surrounded by the strangely shaped rocks called the “Devil’s Washboard”; and the castle town of Obi in the city of Nichinan, known as the “small Kyoto of Kyushu” for its streetscapes reminiscent of the Edo Era.
