In a world of mythology where the gods descend to the earth, Nobeoka is a “hybrid city” that blends the old and the new. It is a town built among castle ruins, but also features factories that use the latest technology. Nobeoka is surrounded by mountains, rivers, and even the ocean. Nobeoka has also been called a “Gourmet Town” because of its delicious yet reasonably priced food and sake.
