What if we want to hire a private taxi?

Yes, it is possible and using a taxi will be easier to travel since the transportation facility is not very good in the area.

I can accompany you from Fukuoka. It costs about US$75 (round trip) to go to Miyazaki by express bus. I recommend you stay in Miyazaki one night (you don't need to pay for my accommodation).

“ 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!

Hitomi:

I'm very glad that you enjoyed my tour in spite of the rain! It was a big pleasure for me to share my hometown city with your family. I really loved the picture we took with the moai statues, that was really creative! Thank you very much for taking my tour, I hope you'll come back to Miyazaki again !(^^)!☀
