nature, history, climate and culture. 

Kyushu is also one of the oldest part of Japan, and it is believed to have hosted some of

first human settlers from other part of Asia.

As well there are abundant fantastic hidden gems around popular destinations,

and further more there are lot of off the beaten path in the remote areas.

Kyushu is the Gateway to Japan

Kyushu has accumulated by far the richest experience of early contacts with sophisticated

cultures  from the continent and beyond. Japan’s encounters with Chinese civilization, and

subsequently  Europe, have all started here in Kyushu.

Whenever questions are raised on origin of Japanese culture, identity and relations with

the outside  world, at some stage the focus inevitably returns to the history of Kyushu.




Kyushu has rich landscapes including nature and diverse cultures

including food cultures. And also,  Kyushu is known as ‘Onsen island’

and there are many Onsen resorts to stop into while you’re travelling



Onsen Resorts

Kyushu is known for the best and most picturesque Onsen resorts in all of Japan.

The profusion of Onsen is due in part to Kyushu’s very landscape: it’s home to no less than

volcano groups that are responsible for creating the island’s thermal waters.
