Makes your wishes come true TheSeaofCruz願いが叶うクルスの海


“Cruz” is the Portuguese word for “cross.” From the “Sea of Cruz” viewing platform, the distant rocks seem to form the Japanese character for “kanau” (“to grant”), and as such it is said that visitors will get their wishes granted. A bell was installed here for visitors to purify their hearts and announce to the heavens their wishes. The shape of the bell represents two people looking after and caring for one another.

          Miyazaki Main 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.
