Speaking of Miyahara, everyone will remember the legendary pineapple cake. If you have the opportunity to visit, you should try ice cream with a variety of toppings. There are lots of different flavours for you to choose from. I would recommend their signature flavours Alisan Olong or Uganda 80% Smoked Chocolate. Gaomei Wetland Preservation Area is located near Miyahara so you may want to drop by before heading here for ice-cream and shopping.
