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).

Amazon hits and misses

Most of my purchases on Amazon have been household goods and groceries. Kitchen equipment, rugs, laundry and bath stuff. For food, mostly whole bean coffee, condiments, and dried or canned foods. So my question is, for kitchen, bath, and laundry, what purchases have you made that were good value for money? What grocery items do you get?

Your fave autumn leaf spots

I know it's still hot right now in much of the country, but I'm already dreaming of the changing leaves (and cooler temps!) of autumn. What are your favorite autumn leaf spots across Japan? Here in Niigata I really like the scenery and colors around Lake Daigenta which is about a 30 minute drive from home!

Recommendation please for Effective JLPT study resources

Good day and happy summer to everyone! Please spare a moment to share your recommendations for effective JLPT preparation resources. I have been invited to work part time as an Assistant English Teacher even they knew I am not fluent in their language both written and verbal, but it was fun and I made it through. Since then, I came to appreciate teaching here but I was advised that I will be more effective and well compensated if I have an JLPT Certification. Please, would appreciate your recommendation as to where and how to map a successful study and preparation path. Also, I have a plan to volunteer and start up a reading and practice your everyday English in my community which is going to be once or twice a month program. Thank you in advance.
