Hyuga Coastline – Miyazaki
Japan is pretty wild country when it comes to geology, and any visit to the cost is bound to show you any number of geological features you’d only find in textbooks in other countries. Here’s a few snapshots of the wild coastline to the south of Hyuga city in Miyazaki prefecture, taken last summer. It might not look to bad, but the rock is very sharp and it was an ordeal to get from the top of the hill down to the rocky bottom and the water’s edge without scratches or bruises. Not surprisingly there were no other people in sight except for some fishing enthusiasts on one of the rock islands out in the ocean. I have more photos of this part of Japan and the critters that live here coming up.
