Spring 2023 Land of Samurai Kyushu Tour (10d/9n)

Kyushu Tour Description

Our well-balanced small group tour of Japan’s southern island of Kyushu in spring will give you a comprehensive experience of Kyushu’s nature, history, and culture. You will not only visit all the must-see places on the island, but you will also visit small towns that don’t get many foreign tourists and have the chance to dive into the world of pottery at a world-famous pottery town. This tour makes for a great add-on to a trip to Tokyo and/or Kyoto, or for Japan-repeaters who want to discover Kyushu in-depth this time around.

Spring is a great time to come to Kyushu, which has a mild climate compared to Japan’s more northern regions. You can expect temperatures in the low 20s (Celcius)/low 70s (Fahrenheit) during this spring tour, and beautiful cherry blossoms and other flowers to bloom throughout the spring season.

You will see and experience more in 10 days than you can imagine, these are some of the highlights of this tour; a tea ceremony, rice paddies, an art village, volcanically active hot springs in Beppu, green Mt. Aso, history in Kagoshima, learn about the earthquake in Kumamoto, war history in Nagasaki, and pottery in Arita and Karatsu including a workshop, plus a lot more. Join us for the trip of a lifetime!

Wifi is available on the bus and in the hotels.
