Japan trip #5..where have we missed?

Jump to last reply

We're flying Bris.-Singapore- Fukuoka end April , so I guess this dictates where we will go this 3 week visit. On other visits we've ferried, driven,trained,bussed and flew most of Japan top to almost bottom, mainly at backpacker level though we're mid 60's. So Toyoko Inns , food basements after 5pm and trains a little slower are our chosen style.....
I can see us travelling more of Kyushu and the Western Honshu this time , ending in Osaka. Uh oh, didn't factor in Golden Week and hotel bookings are looking grim now....like only 2 single rooms bookable in all Matsue area on May 3-5.
I'd like to ask about less- visited destinations in Kyushu and Western Honshu. It seems the San-in Coast is looking promising even though we've been to Matsue last time, it's fairly quiet and unspoiled. We like temples,art,spectacular scenery (but not hikes or bikes) small interesting towns,food etc. and some city time too. Can rent cars or fly where beneficial but trains and busses are fine....
Any advice and secret places appreciated....
cheers
Tom and Kathy
