Japan - Kyushu (Chapter)
This is the Kyūshū chapter from Lonely Planet’s Japan guidebook.
Japan’s southern- and westernmost main island is arguably its warmest, friendliest and most beautiful, with active volcanic peaks, rocky, lush and near-tropical coastlines, and great onsen virtually everywhere. Peppered throughout are relaxing hot-spring towns, trekking trails and family-friendly fun.
- rowing amid waterfalls and hungry ducks in Takachiho Gorge

- getting buried in warm volcanic sand in Ibusuki
- restaurants & accommodation
