While many visitors to Japan concentrate on the largest island of Honshu, there are other islands to explore in this fabulous country and Kyushu island is a great example.
This Japanese island is home to Miyazaki, a prefecture which is on the south of the island and makes a tremendous base for a Japan golf holiday. Miyazaki prefecture has its own airport, located just a few kilometres from the city which shares the same name. There are regular flights from Tokyo and Osaka plus Seoul, Taipei and Hong Kong.
When booking a Miyazaki golf holiday, you will be greeted with mild temperatures, plus beautiful mountainous and coastal scenery.
Takachiho is a lovely place to visit when playing golf in Miyazaki and is known as a place of profound religious importance. Some of the best areas for a spiritual experience include Amano Iwato Shrine and Takachiho Gorge, the latter of which is a great place to hire a kayak and get on the water.
The city of Miyazaki enjoys more hours of sunshine than any other city in Japan and this alone makes it a top choice for a golf holiday in the country. There is a relaxed atmosphere and the castle towns of Aya and Obi are good places to explore.
There are two excellent golf courses to play in Miyazaki, Phoenix Country Club and Tom Watson Golf Course. As the name suggests, the latter is designed by legendary golfer Tom Watson and is rated very highly by all those who have played the course.
