This premier cherry blossom viewing spot in southern Kyushu is known as the “Thousand Cherry Trees of Mochio.” About 2,600 trees of varieties such as Yoshino and double-flowered cherries bloom throughout the park. An impressive two kilometers of flowering trees line the streets, and when in full bloom, the whole park turns the rosy hues of the cherry blossoms. Annually, during the flowering season, events such as evening illumination of the blossoms and the Miyakonojo Mochio Cherry Blossom Festival are held, and the park bustles with visitors who come to view the blossoms. This is the only park in Miyazaki Prefecture that has been selected as one of Japan’s top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots.

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.
