Places of interest in Miyazaki
The Miyazaki leg of the Torch Relay begins in the northern town of Takachiho and will visit the city of Hyuga, where Omi Shrine sits at the edge of a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. From there, it will 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 the city of Miyazaki, travelling across the southwestern part of the prefecture and arriving in the city of Ebino for a celebration.
Some of the sites the torch will visit on its journey across Miyazaki include: The 1900 year old Takachiho Shrine, head of the 88 Takachiho-kyo; Aoshima Island in the city of Miyazaki, 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.
