Trip to Miyazaki this summer. Any recommendations?

Heading to Miyazaki, Kyushu this summer (4 nights, staying in Aoshima). Any recommendations on places to eat would be much appreciated. Also, any sightseeing spots? The priority is surfing but we'll have a car and will still have time to travel around a bit. Cheers!

    If you're in Fukuoka (or Oita) on your way there, I recommend Taiho Ramen for the tonkotsu ramen Fukuoka / Kyushu is known for. Miyazaki is more famous for their mangoes and 'chicken nanban' from what I've heard. I'm hoping we'll get there this summer, but haven't been there yet to be more specific about restaurants. The food is great in Kyushu, so anything with local flavors is going to be a little different from what you'd find around Tokyo. Enjoy & I'll watch this for ideas too.

    @helloalissa - Thx. "Taiho ramen," hadn't heard of that one. I shall keep it in mind. I've heard some nice things about the Nichinan cost south of Miyazaki, and the Japanese guidebook / magazine is telling us to go to an old town called Obi. I'm also hoping we can drive north up the coast towards Hyuga (?), although that's mainly to check out some surf points (although I hear it's a nice drive).

I am looking for an oven like we have in the west. I am ok with a smaller size. I have been browsing on Amazon, but I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations? I want to get an oven to bake! Thank you!

Tips for a trip to Nagasaki/Fukuoka/Saga/Oita?

We're trying to head down to Kyushu for a little break later this year, and if you've been to any of the abovementioned prefectures before (or even live there!) I'd love to hear your suggestions for cool things to do and see - preferably the cool spots that guidebooks or online resources might not cover! Thanks in advance!

Living in Miyahara-shi

I have been asked to consider a role that is based in Miyahara-shi. If I went for this job I would be on my own (family will not be able to move initially). Would be good to get some idea of any expat community or life in the area. Whilst I have some very rusty and basic speaking Japanese I would need to be able to communicate at least in the early days in English. Any input?

Laundry doesn’t smell fresh

Hi guys! I was wondering about my laundry. We moved and got a new washing machine and I don’t smell the scent of the fabric softener. Is something wrong with the washing machine? I used this softener before in my parents washing machine and it works fine.
