think this is very subjective. really depend on ur interest.
maybe u can list the places u plan to visit in each city, then we can better advise which one will make more economical sense or which is too rush/packed
I have recently been to Kumamoto and Nagasaki. Priority will be Nagasaki as they have much more to do from the atomic bomb musuem, peace park, gunkajima, mount inasa (amazing nighy view).

I personally don't find Kumamoto interesting.
Hi, thank you for your comments..

so previously i asked where to go if i had 2 days 1 night in kyushu. Turned out my friend backed out of our hokkaido trip, so I will be spending 10d 9n in kyushu.

Day 1,2: Fukuoka
Day 3: Beppu
Day 4,5: Kagoshima
Day 6,7: Kumamoto
Day 8,9: Nagasaki
Day 10: Leaving Japan

this will be the places I will be visiting in 3 weeks time.. I havent really plan exactly which places to travel to within the cities above but i have scanned through japan guide and found some places like mt aso to be perhaps less worthy of a visit since the crater cannot be seen now..

looking for any suggestions on places to see.. also, is it better to drive ard sakurajima?

i dont mind places that are 'off the beaten track'.. if anyone has recommendations, pls do comment.

actually the more iconic feature of mt aso is not the crater, but Komezuka, the cone shaped hill that is typically used pictures of mt aso.

kyushu is best explored by car. a lot of the nature spots are difficult to get to by public transport. maybe u can consider driving?

my trip report here for reference, but not driving trip

think the only places that are a bit off the beaten track that i went is Tsujunkyo and Kikuchi Gorge. tt trip was my first time driving overseas, so only drove 1 day try try.

I assume you'll be flying in and out of Tokyo. To save money, consider taking advantage of ANA's Experience Japan fares. One way fare HND-HKD or CTS-HND is as low as 10,800 yen.
yes i checked that already. I check the JAL one. It is actually no different when I book from the international page (as in i check the price from SIN-HND +10800yen *2) vs (SIN-HKD, CTS-SIN) the price macham similar
Looking at my trip last year, NRT-CTS return on JetStar including 25kg baggage was •36440 for 2pax (•9110/person/way).

thanks for sharing your trip itinerary.. will probably go to some of them.. but i read tsujunkyo will not be sprouting water from dec-mar so not sure if i would still be going there..

i would love to drive too but im going alone.. if i had a company, i wouldnt mind..

Hi dimitri_can,

Can you suggest a cheaper and yet effortless way to get to kyoto from tokyo without the shinkansen due to the expensive ticket?

Right now i'm thinking maybe i should fly to tokyo then change to a domestic jetstar flight to osaka and from osaka then get over to kyoto again.

Looking forward to your reply!

Night bus
Seishun 18 ticket (if available during your date of travel)

Most value for money combo may be to take a cheap day bus (2200yen) to Nagoya, buy the kintetsu rail pass (3700yen) and board up the kintetsu ltd express to Osaka
