Miyazaki (tours from Aburatsu) , Japan
USDTBC per person
Delve into the top historical sites of Miyazaki and journey through time at three astonishing locations.
Travel back to the 15th century as you explore the moss-covered ancient stone walls of the Obi Castle Ruins. Ruled by the fierce, samurai Ito Clan for 14 generations, the idyllic ruins are surrounded by traditional Edo period architecture and former samurai residences, including Yoshokan.
On Aoshima Island, wander through the colourful Aoshima Shrine, which is set in a lush, tropical jungle, ringed by beautiful white beaches. At low tide you may see the enigmatic Devil’s Washboard, natural rows of rock so straight, they look manmade. Then enjoy lunch in a local restaurant.
Then pay your respects next at the brightly painted Udo Jingu shrine. This mysterious storybook-like structure was built into a rugged cave, on a cliff overlooking a dramatic coastline.
