Wind chimes and icy colors are essential in summer. Then its autumn, when a host of goodies are harvested one after the other. Autumn in Japan is magnificent. It may even be more visually stunning than the cherry blossoms of spring, maybe.
This Kyushu Fall Foliage Explorer is one you do not want to miss. The very best of fall foliage viewing spots are included with visits to Hakata, a gondola-like boat cruise on the Yanagawa River, onto Nagasaki, a welcoming, peaceful city boasting a colorful trading history, alluring churches, shrines and temples, and an East-meets-West culinary scene, all set prettily around a gracious harbor. There is also Kumamoto and the hot spring towns of Yufuin and Beppu.
Ah, but so much more! Get ready as we have seats to the Fukuoka Grand Sumo Tournament. It’s the last major tournament of the year as wrestlers battle it out for 15 days to decide the eventual championship.
More unique additions added this year include a visit to Hibikinada Green Park, one of the most beautiful parks located near the sea side of Kitakyushu. There’s a rose garden with 320 different kinds of roses, Hibiki Animal World with approximately 250 kangaroos which you can get up close to pet and feed, wallabies and wallaroo. As well, you can enjoy the tropical ecology garden and the urban greening center.
For more unique fun, a visit to the TOTO Museum. It looks more like a modern art gallery and once inside you will see why. Truly, an experience you won’t want to miss sitting or standing.
