Kurokawa from Kumamoto or Kagoshima

Jump to last reply

We are trying to decide if/how we should rearrange our Kyushu trip in October. As it stands now, we'll be starting in Kagoshima, spending one night before and after we go to Kurokawa. With the damage from the earthquake, we are trying to assess what makes the most sense. We planned on renting a car, but if we go from Kagoshima, I'm not sure it's worth paying the one way drop off surcharge

I know Mt. Aso is mostly closed (as of now) and some of the roads have been impacted. We also want to go to Takachiho Gorge.

I know our trip is six months off, but given the earthquake/volcanic activity, does it still make sense for us to keep this itinerary, or stay in Fukuoka and Nagasaki and take the ferry to Busan? We're flying in and out of KIX, so extra time on Honshu is an option too. (We'll be going to Kurashiki, Miyajima, Hiroshima, Kyoto (2nd time) and Osaka.)

Please advise. Thank you.
