“ great family tour ”

Our Family enjoyed the tour with Hitomi. We visited the Udo-shrine. There you have an impressive view on the Pacific. The shrine itself is build in a cave. And Hitomi tell you why the shrine was built. Afterwards we did go to the moai statues. Where also a small Museum is located. Finally we enjoyed a cafe in Miyazaki downtown. Thanks for all!
