Fantastically-shaped rocks at the Jodogahama beach and abundant alpine plants in Mt, Hayachine.
Miyako City is proud of its abundant nature with beautiful sceneries. Among them, Jyodogahama beach is the best spot in Miyako City to visit -- the combination of jagged white-rocks promontory, dark-blue sea and green Japanese red pines are breathtakingly beautiful throughout the year. Viewing this picturesque landscape from a sightseeing boat is highly recommended. Mt. Hayachine also has scenic beauties where alpine plants are abundant and white birch forests are spreading over the Kuzakai highland at a height of 700m above sea level and is designated as a Nature Conservation Area. True pleasure is in the night time, when you can enjoy local sake with delicious foods from the mountains and the sea.
