Map of Japanese provinces (1868) with Hy?ga Province highlighted

Hy?ga Province (, Hy?ga no kuni) was an old province of Japan on the east coast of Ky?sh?, corresponding to the modern Miyazaki Prefecture.[1] It was sometimes called Nissh? () or K?sh? (). Hy?ga bordered on Bungo, Higo, ?sumi, and Satsuma Province.

The ancient capital was near Saito.


In the Kojiki and the Nihon Shoki, Hy?ga is called Kumaso Province (, Kumaso no kuni) of Tsukushi-no-shima (Kyushu), along the provinces of Tsukushi, Toyo and Hi.

In the 3rd month of the 6th year of the Wad? era (713), the land of Hy?ga was administratively separated from ?sumi Province (). In that same year, Empress Genmei's Daij?-kan continued to organize other cadastral changes in the provincial map of the Nara period.[2]

During the Sengoku period, the area was often divided into a northern fief around Agata castle (near modern Nobeoka), and a southern fief around Obi castle, near modern Nichinan. The southern fief was held by the Shimazu clan of nearby Satsuma for much of the period. The It? clan held control of Hyuga until it was conquered by the Shimazu in 1578.
