This park was created over the ruins of Amagajo Castle in Takaoka Town, Miyazaki City, Miyazaki Prefecture, and it features spectacular views of Oyodogawa River, the town, and the Hyuga-nada sea. The roughly 1,300 Yoshino trees are termed “senbon-zakura” and they paint the area pink and white from late March to early April. The azaleas are best in mid-April, when a nice contrast and shift from pink to red comes into force. During the sakura season, the Amagajo Kaimon Sakura Festival is held. Toilets, tea café and parking available.

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.
