The downtown area of Miyazaki Station is Tachibana-dori, which is a short distance from the station.
It's a bit far from the station, about a 15-minute walk.
Since it is a bit far, it is convenient to use the "Guruppi" bus.
It only takes a little over five minutes from Miyazaki Station to the Tachibana Dori area, and the bus runs every 12 minutes.
The fare is 100 yen per ride (children under elementary school age ride for free), so I appreciate the reasonable price. You can pay by using an IC card or cash.
