    Miyazaki Pref. Nishiusukiguntakachihochou Shimono 2221-2
    This is an undiluted sake storehouse for the Kagura Shuzo brewery, famous for products such as the mugi (barley) shochu Kurouma and soba (buckwheat) shochu Tensho. Originally a tunnel for the Trans-Kyushu railroad, construction was stopped due to flooding but gained new life as a barrel storage facility for shochu due to its unchanging temperature and humidity. Around 1,300 barrels are stored in the 1,115-meter-long tunnel, through which the rich aroma of vapor shochu drifts. At the facility’s tourism center, one can try the stored distilled spirit for free.

    A cool winery, using an old train tunnel to store barrels. Different kinds of wine are available for free tasting. Worth to stop by after visiting the gorge. You may also shop for local omiyage at...

    Miyazaki Nichinan-shi Kitagocho Gonohara Ko 888-banchi
    "This shochu ""dojo"" adjoins the breweries of Inoue-Syuzo and Sakuranosato-Syuzou. The dojo was opened with the aim of passing on the techniques of authentic shochu, a traditional industry in southern Kyushu. The dojo is a reproduction of a Meiji/Taisho period brewery and is made of Obi cedar, once a local specialty product. The dojo engages in the production of shochu year-round, making it possible for visitors to view the production process whenever they visit. Visitors can also participate in a shochu-making activity and blend together six varieties of shochu as they see fit to produce a one-of-a-kind, original shochu (advance reservation required)."

    It was a great experience to see how sochu is made and to have an endless supply of all the varieties (looked like about 50) on hand to sample, with what seemed to be small bottomless cups. For the...

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.
