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).

Your favorite summer getaway spots?

Any favorite places you all have to get away to during the stinking hot summer months? I would love a long weekend away somewhere (ideally cooler!) We did Hakodate/Aomori one summer and really enjoyed it. Would love to hear your suggestions.

Hot water into cold water

I heard or read somewhere that pouring hot water into cold water was not a good thing to do. (I like my water luke warm sometimes) Something to do with religion or dead association with dead people (and Japan does not like that) Have you heard of this? Any sources I could see so I don’t mess up in a critical moment?

Annoying morning futon slapping noise. What time is OK?

There's a middle-aged guy, living in one of the apartments in the building across the street from me, who hangs out his futon between 7 - 8 am and then bangs the sh@*t out of them with one of those stupid plastic slapping devices. Honestly, I want to take it from him and slap him with it instead. Of course, I'll end up doing nothing of the sort, but I find this futon-slapping at that time so annoying and noisy and am astonished that he continues to do it despite his noise echoing down the whole street and him being the only person on the street to do so (at least at that sort of time). If he was in my building I might stick a note through his door or something, but I'm not sure about the protocol of doing that when the culprit is in a different building. I'm also wondering if the 7 - 8 am slot for futon-slapping is a perfectly acceptable one and actually it's me that needs the attitude adjustment. Thoughts?
