golden week – road trip kyushu
Golden week – Time for Holiday! By Ferry we went to Kyushu, Kagoshima. Weather should be really nice… But once again the rain is traveling with us. But anyway, we had a nice time on our road trip trough Kyushu.
As almost whole japan, Kyushu area as well, is easy to reach by train. But you should be aware, that you will always travel with the crowd! Kyushu has a lot of nice, lonely and hidden placed, much easier to reach by car. That is why we got stucked in the south, where we started our trip. One week is just not enough to take the round trip. AT the southern end of Kushu, we found nice waterfalls and hiking spots, where we could stay easily on the parking area with our camper van. So we started close to Miyazaki and drove with several stops to Kagoshima and further to Nagasaki.
Some highlights we passed on the way: Hanza River, Minami Kyushu Coast, Mt. Aso Area, Oyama Onsen, Mini Island close to Ibusuki, Takachiho Gorge, Futatsu shrine, Lake Ikeda, Kamikawa Otaki Park & waterfall….
