Miyazaki City – The Gyoza Eating Capital of Japan

The 2021 survey on family income and expenditure declared Miyazaki City to eat the most gyoza in Japan. With the average expenses on gyoza of ¥4,184* per family (household with two or more persons), Miyazaki surpassed other “gyoza cities” such as Hamamatsu (¥3,728) and Utsunomiya (¥3,129) by a significant margin. Miyazaki launched a gyoza association 20 years ago to promote local dumplings made of pork, nira Chinese chive, cabbage, and so on. *The figure doesn’t include in-restaurant gyoza expenses and purchases of frozen products.
