Kyushu is the third largest island of the Japanese territory and offers hot springs, delicious food and a warm climate. The island is located about 1200 km south of Tokyo and is divided into seven prefectures. Due to the favorable location and accessibility by boat, Kyushu is known as the “gateway to Japan”.
Distinctive coastlines and small isolated islands make Kyushu an attractive destination to travelers. Healthy food and the unique local cuisine offer an enjoyable stay. On top of that, living expenses are quite low compared to other parts of Japan and the Kyushu Shinkansen line ensures comfortable travels from and to Kyushu making the island even more inviting.
