    Miyazaki Pref. Miyazakishi Miyazakiekihigashi 1-2-2
    This science museum has one of the world's largest planetariums. Outside is a 40-meter-tall full-scale mockup of an H1 rocket and inside is a replica of the Apollo 11 Lunar Lander Module. The planetarium shows three shows per day, each approximately 50 minutes long. The shows explore that evening's night sky with explanations from popular characters from space-themed anime. There's also hand on exhibitions, including a simulation where you can try controlling a spaceship, making this a great place to bring kids to. The museum is a two-minute walk from JR Miyazaki Station.

    We visited just the museum, not the observatory. As we knew the ground floor of the museum was devoted to space, we went hoping to learn about the past and current Japanese space programme. We...

    Miyazaki Pref. Miyazakishi Aoshima 2-13-1
    Japan’s first wax figure museum dedicated to Japanese myths located on the grounds of Aoshima Jinja. The museum presents 12 segments from Japanese myths in an easy to understand way using 30 wax figures, including the descent of the sun goddess; the story “Yamasachihiko, Umisahihiko,” which relates to the deities the shrine is dedicated to; and the conquest of Japan by Emperor Jinmu. The museum also displays wax figures of the Seven Gods of Fortune and former Yomiuri Giants baseball coach Shigeo Nagashima, who frequently went camping in Miyazaki.

    青島神社の境内で参道に進む途中の左側のコンクリートの建物です。 天照大御神から始まる日本建国の神話を蝋人形で視覚的にも分かり易く説明してます。 拝観料大人600円がもう少し安かったら皆さん入館するんでしょうが…

    Miyazaki Pref. Saitoshi Miyake Saito Hara west 5670
    A museum located in the Saitobaru Tomb Area, a collection of some of Japan’s oldest tombs. Now a designated Special Historic Landmark Park, the area is dotted with over 300 tombs. The museum displays artefacts from the tombs and visitors can learn about the formation of the geography of southern Kyushu and the mysteries of the tombs from a diverse array of materials. The Ancient Life Interactive Center’s hands on exhibits, where visitors can ake a hands-on class about making haniwa and dogu clay figures, is particularly popular. From the third-floor restaurant, you can enjoy a cup of tea while gazing out over the Saitobaru Tomb Area, famed for its seasonal blossoms, particularly its cherries in spring.

    If you are interested in history or archeology or you just want to know more about the tombs here, this is the place you have to go. The museum is equipped with tablets which show all the description...

    Miyazaki Pref. Kushimashi Ono 42-1
    Toimisaki Visitor Center is around 45 minutes by bus from Kushima Station on the JR Nichinan Line. The Center was established to introduce visitors to the ecosystem of the Cape Toi area-including the small Misaki Horses, which are native to Japan and have been designated as a National Natural Monument Protected Species-and how the region's beautiful scenery changes with the seasons. There are dioramas of Cape Toi, models of the Misaki Horses, and displays relating to the history of human settlement in the area and of the Misaki Horses. The center also offers a range of experiential activities, including the opportunity to learn how to make horse-hair straps from real horse hair. In addition, the center arranges guided tours to help visitors learn more about the Misaki Horses, the area's plant and animal life, and nearby historic buildings, etc.

    昨年11月、時間が少ない中訪れましたが行って良かったです。日本の在来馬のことや、馬の目撃場所などもわかりやすく手作り感ある展示が見られました。係員の方が都合に合わせて説明してくださったのも良かったです。そしてお話通り、センター裏で馬の親子が見られました!

    建物自体が明治期の建造物で国の文化財として指定されています。 とても立派な見ごたえのあるもので、建物だけでも見る価値がりますが、 資料館として活用されています。入館料もとても安いので観光で時間があれば中もゆっくり見るといいです。

Miyazaki Areas

An unmissable highlight of Kyushu, Miyazaki prefecture satisfies nature lovers with its dramatic gorges cut out of rugged cliffs, leading into waterfalls and beaches of green-blue water popular among surfers. Takachiho Gorge in the north of the prefecture tells a tale of centuries-old Japanese mythology in a fantastic setting, allowing visitors to explore the waters by boat before heading up to the cave at the Awano Iwato Shrine, where the sun goddess was said to have hidden, plunging the world into darkness.
