    This restaurant, located in the Takachiho-Gamadase Market, serves cuisine using Takachiho beef. Guests can choose from teppanyaki, table steak and yakiniku courses. Teppanyaki means that the chef cooks the meat right in front of you. The restaurant is directly run by JA (Japan Agricultural Cooperatives) so delicious Takachiho beef can be enjoyed at reasonable prices.

    The restaurant is of decent size so finding a table was not difficult for our group of six pax. The waiting staff while not as warm as I’ve encountered on this trip to Kyushu, they are patient with...

    This restaurant located in Miyazaki City serves chicken. Many chicken dishes are available for you to enjoy from chicken sashimi, chicken nanban (crispy chicken in a sweet and sour sauce) to the specialty “momoyaki” grilled chicken thigh.

    Glad we could make a reservation. This izakaya has a large menu of local foods as well as drinks. Definitely have some sumibiyaki—food that has been grilled over a low, buried flame (it looks like...

    This chicken cuisine restaurant is located in Nobeoka City. The simple taste of chicken nanban, made with Miyazaki grown chicken breast and an original sweet and sour sauce, is popular. Rice cooked freshly in a pressure cooker pot, dried anchovy from Kitaura and miso soup made with Mukabaki dried shiitake mushrooms are also popular. Enjoy chicken cuisine using carefully selected local and prefectural produce.

    Nao Chan has moved to new quarters. The new location is literally a stone’s throw up the same alley, closer to the Route Inn. The chicken is probably the best I have ever had. I was here for two...

    Miyazaki Pref. Saitoshi Minamikata 3316-3
    This is a long-established eel restaurant established in 1894 in Saito City, Miyazaki Prefecture. Guests can enjoy the taste of “kaba-yaki” (eel, dipped and broiled in soy sauce) using carefully selected local eel. The well-grilled odorless taste is characteristic of domestic eel. It is a popular restaurant with queues forming at opening and offers a waiting room as well. Many people visit from afar.

    Miyazaki is actually famous for Chicken Nanban so when a local told me that Irifune offers very delicious eel dishes, I was a bit skeptical. However, I wasnt disappointed after my visit. The eel...

    This Japanese sweet shop is famous for its specialty, the nanjakora daifuku (what the heck is this daifuku). The nanjakora daifuku is coarse sweet red bean paste, Japanese chestnut paste, strawberries, and cream cheese wrapped in gyuhi, a type of rice dough. Its uniqueness brought it wild popularity and now the shop also offers a nanjakora choux, a creampuff made with Ogura cream, Japanese chestnut paste, strawberries, and cheese. The cheese manju steamed buns, a Miyazaki favorite, are also popular.

    日の出町の工場直売店にいきました。 なんじゃこら大福だけでなくチーズ饅頭や沢山のお菓子があり、席数は少ないですがお茶やコーヒーがあり食べることもできます。 なんじゃこら大福は掌にずっしりとボリュームがあり餡子とクリームチーズと苺と栗の絶妙なバランスが良く美味しかったです。

    Fruit Ohno was established in 1982, and its parfaits, which use special fruits from Miyazaki, are very popular. There are a number of parfaits on the menu that can only be found in this particular store, including items that are only available during certain seasons. Customers can freely choose their own toppings to go with the soft-serve ice cream. The store is approximately 15 minutes on foot from the JR Miyazaki Station.

    This is a restaurant located in Takachiho Town, Nishiusuki County, Miyazaki Prefecture serving local traditional cuisine. The restaurant is famous for serving the “Original Nagashi Somen” (flowing noodles) in bamboo at the counter seats. There is also equipment installed on the tables that rotate to experience “Nagashi Somen”. “Sashimi konjac”, and “Yamame” (landlocked salmon) baked onsite, are also popular. Many sightseers to Takachiho Gorge visit the restaurant.

    Average food but the fun is in the noodle catch. That was a laugh and a half. I really enjoyed doing that. In the area of Takachihio gorge its the best place to eat in my opinion. Give Chiho no Ie...

    "This local cuisine restaurant is situated on the road leading to Obijo-mae Street. Situated on the site of the government office for Obi Domain in the Edo period, the history-leaden building is also famously the only extant example of nagakura architecture in the former castle town of Obi. The restaurant is renowned for its ""Obiten,"" a traditional Obi regional variety of tempura consisting of minced fish mixed with tofu and miso before being deep-fried. Tender in texture and bearing a mild, slightly sweet flavor, once you take a bite, you'll never forget how delicious it is, and many tourists make their way to the restaurant time and again to enjoy the delicacy. The restaurant's ""Obiten Teishoku"" set meal is also popular, and comes with the signature Obiten as well as crab miso soup, an atsuyaki omelet, and other regional Obi dishes."

    Miyazaki Pref. Miyazakishi Chuoudori 6-3 West Building 1F
    This Western restaurant is located on the Chuo-dori street in Miyazaki City, Miyazaki Prefecture. Its owner was a chef at “Ogura,” a restaurant which is said to have invented Chicken Nanban, since the beginning. The Special Chicken Nanban on the restaurant’s menu is made with a chicken, which is prepared that very day, from which only the breast meat is used for the exquisite meal. Sweet vinegar and a homemade tartar sauce are poured onto the soft breast meat, creating a flavor that is quite addictive. The restaurant has a retro interior with primarily counter seats.

    チキン南蛮で有名なお店。2月のプロ野球キャンプ中にお邪魔したので、並びました。2組待ちの3組目でしたが、30分は待ったと思います。着席、オーダーしてからもかなり待ちます。チキン南蛮はムネ肉がポピュラーなのでしょうが、ムネ肉が品切れとなりもも肉をいただきました。おいしかった。待っている間に何人もの方があきらめて去ったのを見てもったいないと思いましたが。時間のある時にはまた行きたいです。

    "This restaurant is situated at the end of a narrow village road. The talented owner has studied extensively in both Tokyo and Nagoya and serves Japanese cuisine with a focus on rare Takachiho beef and vegetable cuisine. Evening meals are reservation-only. Just what vegetables the restaurant stocks varies day-to-day, so those interested in dining on something in particular might want to contact the establishment in advance. As the restaurant's vegetable cuisine is primarily made with local vegetables, it has been certified by the prefecture as ""Choice Local Production for Local Consumption Cuisine."" Terraced rice field sprawl beyond the restaurant's windows, and customers can enjoy a sweeping view of charming pastoral scenery."

    We decided to drive here as it is a bit out of the way. Some of the narrow roads made us doubt if we were actually going the right way but Google Maps was very accurate. The vegetarian lunch plate...

    This is a steak restaurant in Miyazaki City using a brand of beef known as “Pine beef”, a type of Japanese Black beef, raised in Takanabe Town at the restaurant’s own farm. The meat is characterized by a rich sweetness and delicious taste. Enjoy the melt-in-your-mouth softness of the beef, grilled how you like it on an iron plate. Apart from teppanyaki, you can also enjoy a beef curry lunch using Miyazaki beef.

    "This soba noodle restaurant stands on the Kirishima Bird Line. In a space overflowing with warm wood furnishings, the restaurant serves choice, handmade soba noodles. The restaurant makes its noodles by naturally drying buckwheat, grinding it into flour each morning using a stone mill, and mixing it with spring water before rolling out the noodles by hand. The restaurant offers two varieties of noodles, ""nama soba"" (made with a 90% buckwheat flour and 10% wheat flour blend); and unique, southern Kyushu-style ""inaka soba"" (made using only buckwheat flour). Customers can enjoy these noodles along with a tasty soup flavored with dried bonito, dried kelp seaweed, dried young sardine, and dried shitake mushrooms. The restaurant also sells a variety of homemade foods such as buckwheat flour and soba noodles for home use, and breads made with natural yeast."

    The homemade soba is delicious, and the atmosphere of the entire place is just lovely. They also sell their signature sauces, homemade bread, and other local produce.

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.
