Kyushu, Japan

Japan Less-travelled

Kyushu is a region to the southwest of Japan that is less frequented by tourist compared to the more popular Kansai and Kanto regions where Osaka and Tokyo are in, respectively.

Fukuoka International airport is the gateway to Northern Kyushu. It is connected to the local airport and subway transport systems. Travel is convenient with most tourist destinations accessible by JR trains and local subway trains.

There are relatively few tourists in this area– a lot of times I’d be walking around by myself surrounded by locals but the tourists I encountered were mainly Koreans. Most signages are written in Japanese, Chinese and Korean rather than English.
