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. This refreshed tour includes some of the best fall foliage viewing spots and activities that Kyushu has to offer. We begin and end on in one of Kyushu’s favorite cities, Hakata offering just enough night life and great shopping. In addition, there are visits to two onsen towns, Sujiyu and Beppu. No Kyushu tour is ever complete without Kumamoto and the addition of an overnight stay in Saga, while relatively unknown, it is packed with its own charms.
Foliage viewing includes the 5-star rated Mt. Aso Daikanbo Peak Observatory, a drive along the Aso Panorama Line to Mt. Aso, a ride on the Yufuin sightseeing train to Hakata, a gondola-like boat cruise on the Yanagawa River and much more.
We have also included two sake brewery visits, a hands-on experience, and two recently opened venues, teamLab Forest, a digital art collective and LaLaport Fukuoka, a shopping mall and much more.
