Trip to Miyazaki this summer. Any recommendations?

Heading to Miyazaki, Kyushu this summer (4 nights, staying in Aoshima). Any recommendations on places to eat would be much appreciated. Also, any sightseeing spots? The priority is surfing but we'll have a car and will still have time to travel around a bit. Cheers!

    If you're in Fukuoka (or Oita) on your way there, I recommend Taiho Ramen for the tonkotsu ramen Fukuoka / Kyushu is known for. Miyazaki is more famous for their mangoes and 'chicken nanban' from what I've heard. I'm hoping we'll get there this summer, but haven't been there yet to be more specific about restaurants. The food is great in Kyushu, so anything with local flavors is going to be a little different from what you'd find around Tokyo. Enjoy & I'll watch this for ideas too.

    @helloalissa - Thx. "Taiho ramen," hadn't heard of that one. I shall keep it in mind. I've heard some nice things about the Nichinan cost south of Miyazaki, and the Japanese guidebook / magazine is telling us to go to an old town called Obi. I'm also hoping we can drive north up the coast towards Hyuga (?), although that's mainly to check out some surf points (although I hear it's a nice drive).

Physical therapist/physiotherapist experiences in Japan?

My boyfriend has a herniated disk and has been really struggling with the pain and emotional stress. The regular doctor just sent him home with some pain medication, but it's not really doing it. Have you had any experiences with PT's or physiotherapists in Japan? Was it a good experience? Any recommendations for this condition?

Raincoat recommendations?

I feel like rainy season will be here before we all know it, and was wondering if you have any favorite brands for raincoats. I need a couple for my kids (they've outgrown ones that relatives sent us when they were younger) and to be honest I probably should actually get one for myself, too. Sometimes just an umbrella doesn't cut it! Let me know if you have any favorites!

Sleep remedies

Does anyone know of any good sleep aids or remedies that are easy to find in Japan? Nothing heavy, just over-the-counter stuff, herbal teas, other drinks, that kind of thing.

Current Immigration Policies?

Does anyone know the current rules for leaving and reentering the country if you have a work visa. Even when I try to search, I am not really clear on the rules.
