Shiiba Machu Picchu, One of Japan's Top Three Unexplored Regions
The village of Shiiba in Miyazaki Prefecture is one of Japan's "top three unexplored regions." The view of the terraced fields in the Shitamatsuo region has been compared to the Incan ruins of Machu Picchu, so much so that it has become known in recent years as "Shiiba Machu Picchu" and has become a popular tourism spot. The view of the sunrise over the fields is particularly magical to behold.
