Travel in Kyushu.

Jump to last reply

Hi Sir/Mdm,

Need your guidance and help for our upcoming free/easy Kyushu trip in December 2015.
This is our 1st trip to Japan where we will be wandering around Kyushu on our own.
Intend to make it a wonderful trip for my family so will need advise from you guys.

We (me, wife, my mum, 11 yrs old daugther and my mum + my friend with his 9 yrs old daughter), will be arriving Fukuoka on 3rd Dec morning and leaving on 12 Dec morning.
My Sis is staying in Fukuoka, so our plan is to stay in Fukuoka on the 1st day (3rd Dec). Mum won't be travelling together with us around Kyushu as she's can't walk too far, will be staying in Fukuoka with my Sis. Though Sis is staying in Fukuoka, but she's not well verse around Kyushu, as her family don't travel much, appreciate that you guys can guide us along on this.
_______________________________________________________________________________

Rough Itinerary:

3rd Dec >>
In Fukuoka

4th to 8th Dec >>
Planning to start our trip to:

i) Kumamoto (1 day trip)

ii) Yufuin (stay in Onsen hotel 1 night)

iii) Takachino (1 day)

iv) Aso (1 day)

9th to 12th Dec >>
Spend time with Sis & her family and wander around in Fukuoka

________________________________________________________________________________

I need your help on itinerary from 4th to 8th Dec:

i) Base on the places we select, which prefecture should we start 1st, to ensure smooth journey and also to save time? 
Whether is it Fukuoka > Yufuin > Kumamoto > Takachino > Aso > Fukuoka
or
Fukuoka > Kumamoto > Takachino > Yufuin > Fukuoka?
Any suggestion?

ii) We intend to purchase Kyushu Rail pass (3/5 days, Northern area) for this trip, understand that the Northern area pass doesn't cover Takachino, wondering is it advisable to rent a car on that day or should we take bus to Takachino? Any suggestion on where to rent car or where to take bus to Takachino?

iii) Beside staying one night in Yufuin Onsen hotel, will you suggest to stay 1 more night in maybe Kumamoto to make the travelling time to other prefecture easier & smoother?

iv) Is there any farm-stay in Aso to recommend? Or any fruits picking farm that we can go?

Thanks and Hope to hear from you soon.

Regards
Kevin
