This roadside station is along the rugged shoreline highway of Miyazaki. If you move from south to north or the other way round, you have to pass this site. Do stop by for the breathtaking views. From above, you can clearly see the result of who knows how many million years of corrosion by waves and wind. It offers amazing... More

Worth stopping by if you are on the way to Sunmesse Nichinan or that direction and if you plan to spend 2-3 days in Miyazaki. If you will be driving or have friends driving (lucky you!), good spot to make a brief bio/ stretch your legs/ take in the scene break. If you are like me (truly bus11 style i.e.... More

You have to leave the main road and turn east toward the coast to reach this rest area, but you'll be rewarded with beautiful views south along the Nichinan Coast including a good view of the "Devil's Washboard." There are a variety of flowers planted around the area, a walkway down to the sea, and now they seem to specialize... More

Grab an ice-cream, there is one in ‘Shrimp flavor’. The shop sells local agricultural products. There is also a lookout of the famous Nichinan coastline across the road. Local tourist buses also stop here.

Everyone makes a stop here, for snacks, ice-cream, food....but most of all for the gorgeous views of the coast.

The view opposite the road stop was fantastic. Don't try the shrimp flavour ice cream. You may not like it

I visited this place around 2003 and in 2012. Back in 2003 it was called a cactus garden and it had a restaurant serving ostrich steak, which I really enjoyed. But in 2012, it has been converted to a road stop, with a funky statue and fishpond attraction. You can still see remnants of the cactus garden on the hillside.... More
