Yes !  Behind the ferry to Miyajima Isle. !   Ha Ha..... sorry, just had to.  I got on here to look for surf info for Miyazaki and saw your question listed.  Have you surfed in Japan anywhere?  I was in Fukuoka in January and went wind surfing but I realy wanted to surf.  I may be there again in a few weeks and so I will be getting down to Miyazaki as soon as possible.  Also can you tell me if I will be stopped trying to get a board on to the subway and train?  When I was riding around I never saw anything bigger than a backpack on the train.  How will I get my board down there without renting a car?  Thanks...My name is Spencer.

I was just in Irago in  August re Surfing and we geot on the train sytem with our board bags (Huge ones). We had no problems. we travelled from Osaka to Nagoya on several styles of trains. People were very helpful and friendly. We found it a positive experience even though we didn't speak any Japanese.

It was an adventure. Yours in Surfing Graham
