Can I know if anyone verified and stayed successfully in an Airbnb rental since Minpaku law kicked in?

Will love to hear of your experience in verification with the Japanese host and confirming your accommodation.

Day 2 Sapporo Hotel 2 (near Sapporo)
Day 3 Sapporo Hotel 2 (near Sapporo)
Day 4 Sapporo Hotel 2 (near Sapporo)

is a one hour transit enough to catch the connecting flight? looking at a trip in mid-Aug but direct flights are quite expensive. no choice but to take 1 stop.

Hi, I went on my own solo trip to Kyushu last year too. In my opinion, 3 nights is already overkill in Kumamoto. And besides, the main attraction (Kumamoto Castle) is still under construction and won't be ready so soon, why not you explore other cities like Nagasaki or Kagoshima?

you not interested in southern kyushu? the nicer places should be there. fkk and nagasaki are not exactly exciting places. 5 nights is slightly long imo. i did 4 i think and i found it dull.

you can consider taking a 1hr shinkansen to hiroshima if you don't mind going out of kyushu. i kinda like chugoku better, miyajima and iwakuni are nice.

which places u use JR Pass or dont have at all?
wa seh... u stay so many places

yes, i am planning 10 - 11 nights.

any chance i can glance at your itinerary?


day 1 - 3 Kumamoto (3 Nights)
Day 4 - 5 Yufu (2 nights)
Day 6 - 10 Fukouka (5 Nights ? or split with Nagasaki?)


so what do u think?
