Kyushu for 5 days this month. Need ideas!

Jump to last reply

Both our daughters are spending Christmas with boyfriends' families, and my husband and I are in need of a short getaway.

So...I was playing around with flights today and purchased two First Class seats to Fukuoka (with a plane change at NRT) for later this month. $90 and 200,000 miles for the two of us. I have 24 hours to cancel or change, but these were pretty good flights, and I have reached my elite level this year, so I can burn miles with no hit to my status.

We'll arrive in Fukuoka in the evening, have four full days and then leave the next day in the afternoon. I have been madly reading trip reports and all my guidebooks, but most information is geared for spring, summer or fall visits.

Has anyone any experience with Kyushu in the short cold days of December?

I'm thinking we'll go to two towns, plus spend the first night and the last morning in Fukuoka. Nagasaki, Kumamoto and Yufuin are my shortlist at the moment, mainly because they don't seem to involve terribly difficult or lengthy train rides.

We like walking, museums, castles, and eating, I speak some Japanese, and we've been to Japan before, but never to Kyushu!

I know a bunch of you have been to Kyushu. All ideas welcome!
