Located south of Miyazaki City is Kaeda Valley, a ravine that's flanked by the scenic Kumbachi and Soishiyama mountains. Kaeda Valley has multiple hiking trails that take visitors through lush greenery and crystal clear ponds, and ends off at the peak of Mount Boroishi which offers a bird's eye view of Miyazaki City and the surrounding pacific ocean.
There are two main hiking trails at Kaeda Valley, the trail leading to the peak is recommended for more advanced hikers in good health. The other trail is relatively easier due to it being mostly flat ground, making it a relaxing walk amongst the forest and winding rivers. The entire trail takes around 4-5 hours at a relaxed pace; be sure to stop and admire the rock formations, waterfalls, and flowing streams along the way.
