Recent history, culture
Thanks to its sunny climate, local residents are usually considered to have an easy-going but hard-working temperament.
Also due to the pleasant weather conditions, the prefecture hosts many professional sports training camps especially baseball related that welcome major and national teams during the February/March period. This is also supported by local authorities who launched a “Sports Land Miyazaki” project to promote Miyazaki as a region for sport and leisure.
