I'm planning my trip travelling to Kyushu late March 2014 for 3 full weeks, arriving in Fukuoka first. I have the following itinerary on my mind and would like some help on my itinerary if that is manageable, and on how to travel there. My number of days are flexible. Your advise and sight seeing spots would be highly appreciated.
Would you also know any Shubuko stay?
Lastly which travel pass would be the best option for this route? My assumption is that the JR pass would not be the best price for 3 weeks travelling.
*N = nights
1). 3N Fukuoka (Kawachi Fuji garden, Dazaifu)
2). 3N Nagasaki (Huis ten Bosch)
3). 2N Aso
4). 3N Kurokawa onsen (Yufuin)
5). 3N Miyazaki (Takachiho - would you recommend a night stay here?)
6). 3N Tokyo - would flight be cheaper than JR to Tokyo?
Would Yakushima fit in above trip? I like to have a relax holiday and not rush, just want to absorb the delightful things in Kyushu.
Many thanks in advance!
