Daemon de marché

Daemon de marché

On December 1, 2011, Deamon de marché opened in a location overlooking Devil’s Washboard.

Deamon de marché is a shop and restaurant with a wonderful view of the Devil’s Washboard, a scenic area that makes Miyazaki so special.

Welcome to Miyazaki


Deamon de marché is in Miyazaki located on the Kyushu Island southeast of the Japanese archipelago.

Miyazaki is blessed with tropical weather, and is where professional baseball, soccer and other sport teams hold their spring camps.

The Devil’s Washboard

The Devil’s Washboard

The wavelike rock formation that spreads in front of Deamon de marché is called Oni-no-Sentakuita or the Devil’s Washboard.

Aqueous sedimentary rocks (geologic layers of hard sandstone and soft mudstone) that were formed in the sea during the Late Miocene (about 7 million years ago) bulged and these were washed by waves for centuries, leaving behind hard sandstones that now look like boards are piled on top of another.
