Cruises from Hososhima
Hososhima Port is a district of Hyuga City in the Miyazaki Prefecture on the Japanese island of Kyushu. Hyuga is a small port city (pop. 63,000) located on the flatlands between the Kyushu Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. The southern part of Hososhima is older and centred on a commercial fishing fleet, with many Edo Period buildings (17- 19th C).
The northern part is a modern Industrial Port and manufacturing area. Near the entrance to Hososhima Port is Cape Hyuga with its exposed hexagonal pillar rocks and saw-tooth coastline, part of Nippo-Kaigan Quasi-National Park.
