Kushima (串間市)

The most southerly city in Miyazaki prefecture, Kushima City (map) is a quiet town sprawling across nearly 250 square kilometers. The population is currently around 20,000-half of what it was during the city’s prime in the 50’s. This is mostly due to the distance of the city from other major centers. The upside is that there is a cornucopia of unspoiled natural scenes and places for the adventurous tourist to enjoy!
