Kyushu is the third-largest and southern most of the four major islands of Japan.
Its population numbers over 15 million. Although isolated from the Japanese main stream
on Honshu, it has been an important entry point for foreign influence and culture.
During the long period of isolation from the West, the Dutch settlement at Nagasaki in Kyushu
was Japan’s only legitimate connection to the outside world. Kyushu is the closest island to
Korea and China.
In the north, the cosmopolitan city of Fukuoka / Hakata is major international arrival point, and the
terminus for the Shinkansen ( Bullet train ) line from Tokyo.
The island is mountainous, and Japan’s most active volcano, Mt Aso at 1,591 metres, is on Kyushu.
There are many other signs of tectonic activity, including numerous areas of hot springs.
The most famous of these are in Beppu, on the east shore, and around Mt. Aso in central Kyushu.
