A Trip to Kyushu

Hi.. is there any guide for me as i wana  self dr in kyushu

————————

A gentleman named Matthew wrote me a mail asking about guides to traveling in Kyushu. Or more accurately, self-driving in Kyushu. I find it interesting how the incomplete words are comprehensible. Makes you wonder if complete words are necessary at all.

Frankly, Kyushu is so huge, I have no idea where to start. It might be easier if I know it’s Miyazaki, Kumamoto, Nagasaki, Kagoshima, Oita, Fukuoka, or Saga that you’ll be visiting. Then again, I’ve never been to most of Kyushu apart from Fukuoka and Nagasaki. In Fukuoka, I always stayed at my friends’ place and she and her sisters always took me places so I can safely say I don’t have any good advice. But if you’re up for baseball, you should definitely go catch it and immerse yourself in the atmosphere. Not that I’ve tried it myself. But everyone tells me you should try it at least once.

If you’re talking about Nagasaki, I can suggest you walk around Nagasaki city and drive around the prefecture to visit churches. Nagasaki was where Catholicism entered Japan, which is why there’s a whole lot of churches in the prefecture. You can then drive to Sasebo where Huis Ten Bosch is. The Dutch-styled theme park isn’t so much for adults looking for fun and excitement, and it is not a place for one to go alone, as I did. The attractions within the area are pretty underwhelming unless you have a disturbing love of One Piece. Near the theme park, you can also take a ride on Thousand Sunny. However, as night falls, Huis Ten Bosch redeems its lack of excitement and takes your breath away with one of the most magnificent illuminations across the entire park. Speaking of which, there’s also Inasayama which was voted one of the top three most beautiful night views in the world together with Hong Kong and Monaco.

If any of you have any other suggestions, please kindly share with Matthew in the comments section.
