  • Number of days required: at least 3.
  • My score: 4/5.

  • My score: the city 4/5, but because of my friends Kym and Tam I rate it 5/5. If you knew them, you would also do it.

ESPAÑOL

  • I was here: April 18, 2013.
  • Number of days recommended: the only recommendable thing is to visit its neighbor Aoshima and continue.
  • My score: 1/5.

As I usually clarify when I low score a city (1/5 means “I do not recommend going”), Miyazaki is not a dangerous or unpleasant city. On the contrary, Continue reading “MIYAZAKI”
