Head to Miyazaki Prefecture and pay a visit to Takachino Gorge, the "power spot" of the region. The Amaterasu railway that runs through this area is in fact a converted mine cart. With such a small capacity, there can be a struggle for places to ride this so reservations are a must. The prefecture experiences more sunny and longer days than other parts of Japan, even in winter. The warm climate this brings makes the region a place for professional soccer and baseball teams to hold their training camps, as well as for people to head to the resorts for a round of golf.
