Our first stop was Aoshima, an island that looks ordinary until you get up close:
The island is surrounded by these strange rock formations. On closer inspection you get an idea of how strange they are, and they're all natural:
Next up was a place I had to visit. I wanted to see a certain park that had their own version of Moai. There are 7 in total, and they all are symbols for different things (love, wealth, success in studies, etc.).
Miyazaki has some delicious food. Besides their mangoes, they have a dish called chicken nanban, which is friend chicken topped with a tartar sauce. Different restaurants have their own versions of the sauce, and the one I tried was a vegetable-based one that was quite delicious.
Last but not least, I had my delicious mango parfait. It was quite tasty.
