The Obi district, in the center of Nichinan city, used to be a small castle town nicknamed 'Little Kyoto'. The castle was originally built in the 16th century and replicated in 1970s. The castle is surrounded by wide stone steps, mossy stone walls, warehouses and samurai residences, where you can have an authentic feel of the former castle town.
This town and neighboring areas have many distinctive delicacies. Obi tempura is fish paste mixed with tofu, miso and brown sugar in the shape of a leaf, and fried. Lettuce-maki is a type of sushi made by rolling together shrimp, lettuce and mayonnaise in rice and laver. Miyazaki mangoes are exquisitely soft and sweet when fully ripe.
