Wow, Nagsaki seems interesting.

Lots of buildings and ancient structures that look like those in Europe. It even looks like the area is a great place for putting up spas/clubhouses/wellness centers. A good revenue source.

Speaking of which, is Hiroshima part of Southern or Western Japan? (or does it belong to another geographic location???)

I very much like Kyushu. The people there are very rational, stylish and friendly and have one of the tallest regional average height. They speak and act straight the right things so that leaves me no discomfort. The natural beauty in Kyushu is also magnificent. Kyushu is similar to the Netherlands (the number of population, population density and GDP are approximately equal each other) and both of them are very industrialised yet very clean.

Amazing pics.

It shows me that beauty & perfection is present in all places in the country (and not just in Tokyo or the central capital)

A Perfect balance of neo-urban modernism and nature.

I love it. :)

In case anyone has got more of pictures from the city of Miyazaki, I'd really appreciate if you posted them!

Hence, the corridor between North Kyushu (北九州) and Kansai (近畿) was called 'Cyugoku (中国)', literally means 'the middle of the country' (中国).
And even today, the region including Hiroshima and Okayama, is called Cyugoku: the middile of the country.

lol....hmmmm I think Japanese use 中国Chugoku before Chinese did. 中華人民共和国(People's republic of China)Or中華民国(Republic of China)was built around 20th century. So the abbreviation of Chugoku 中国was used in China after that. I heard.
