Kyushu itinerary comments for honeymoon (including Yakushima)?

Jump to last reply

We have our air tickets held HKG-FUK, and want to see what do the Japan experts, including but not limited to hawaiiantraveler and usernameistaken, think about this itinerary.

Dec 27th. Arr FUK late afternoon. Booked ANA Hotel near Hakata JR station with points, but can switch and will likely switch. Walk around, have ramen and especially eating at the yatais.

Dec 28th. Pick up car. Quick visit to Tenmangu at Dazaifu, then continue to Kurokawa. Booked room with private outdoor bath for night of 28th at Ryokan Sanga.

Dec 29th. Hit the various springs of Kurokawa. Switch to Ayanasho at nearby Ota Onsen, booked.

[Because of high season, I cannot get two nights at same ryokan, and cannot move dates later, so these 2 nights are pretty much fixed, unless we want to give up Kurokawa.]

Dec 30th. Mount Aso, drive down to Kagoshima. Return car. Stay perhaps at the Castle Park, if only because I remembered it well during my previous visit to Kagoshima as a kid in 1985.

Dec 31st. Ferry to Yakushima. Pick up car. Stay 2 nights at, perhaps, Hana Mana.

Jan 1st. Whole day round island tour of Yakushima and/or hiking.

Jan 2nd. Late afternoon flight (only flight each day) back to FUK. Again, have ANA booked, but likely switch.

Jan 3rd. If rise early enough, will hit the pottery towns in Saga. If not, just shopping. Late afternoon flight out of FUK back to Hong Kong.

This is for our honeymoon, so budget isn't really an issue. We want to stay at least a couple of nights at an onsen ryokan, which is why we pick Kurokawa. Then, we want to go some "unusual" and memorable place. Funny that it was my bride-to-be who suggested Yakushima, but it is ME who absolutely love "Princess Mononoke", and she has not even watched it.

I know we're missing a lot of Kyushu, but we also don't need to rush through all the tourist sites.

Suggestions much appreciated!!!
