Miyazaki Life

Miyazaki is a pretty cool city. It has a population of around 1million in total and a city population of around 300,000. There is plenty to do in this little town. The Oceandome (the worlds only indoor beach), shrines, temples, beaches and a beautiful coastline. Aya, Nichinan, Takachiho, Huyga are a few surrounding towns that you can't miss exploring if you are in Miyazaki.

The people are lovely. Since there are not that many foreigners in Miyazaki, the locals will always go out of their way to be accomodating.


There are some 3500 bars in Miyazaki...however, it is hard to find many that are appealing to young people, especially foreigners. Of course it depends on what you look for. From my experience (3 years in miyazaki) the best nightlife spot is CLUB 505. It is a small sized R&B/HipHop club. The Owner/Resident DJ knows his music and is really up-to-date. It is a cheap place and the locals that go there are great fun. It is safe, reliable for a good time...and has all English Music. WAVE club is also a great place similar to 505...I have only recently discovered it!

If you are wanting more of a bar scene then AJEST is the place to go. It is small, but has atmosphere. Drinks are 500 yen (CHEAP!!). They have a cool electronic dart board and all the karaoke you can sing! A great bar.

If you are wanting quieter, smaller karaoke experience...then BOOZE (yes that is its actual name) is the way to go. 2500-3000 yen for all the alcohol and karaoke you can manage in one night. Has a cool atmosphere, but is quite small is size.

BeatClap, RealD, Suntory Shot Bar, Asia Bar, Planet Cafe are a few other bars I have discovered to be pretty good.
