8 days in kyushu with fukuoka as base

8 days in Kyushu with Fukuoka as base

Hi, I will be going to Kyushu in march next year. I will be staying in Fukuoka for all 8 days and will be getting the 5 days northern Kyushu pass during my stay.

As I will be staying in Fukuoka, all trips will starts and end here everyday.

Can anyone suggest an itenery which suits and maximise the 5 days northern Kyushu pass.

Hi there,

If you want to make a day trip every day, than you could do the following:
1.) Nagasaki (and possibly Sasebo). Nagasaki is great for its history, nice atmosphere and beautiful bay views.
2.) Aso-san (active volcano and nice hiking in the area)
3.) Beppu (Onsen and sand baths)
4.) Kumamoto (laid back city with several nice places to visit)
5.) Kokura (Great for shopping, different shopping malls, also the sea front is nice).

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Thanks for the suggestion, think I will replace yufuin with beppu as I'm not so interested in the "hell's" in beppu.

Is it possible to travel to saga and Nagasaki in the same day and yufuin and Oita on the same day by using jr pass?

Yes, both are possible. However you should ask yourself how much time you wish to spend in each place as it will definitely be limiting it.
