Hyuga (日向国; Hyūga no kuni) was an old province of Japan on the east coast of Kyushu, corresponding to the modern Miyazaki prefecture. Hyuga bordered on Bungo, Higo, Osumi, and Satsuma Provinces.

The ancient capital was near Saito. 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 Shimadzu clan of nearby Satsuma for much of the period.
