why dont you group both Beppu and Yufuin together, since both are close to each other? Evilerniex is right about Huis Ten Bosch, you probably can do only that with Mt Inasa at night and not forgetting you still need to factor in traveling back to Fukuoka.

4 years ago, I stayed in Beppu > Kagoshima > Kumamoto > Nagasaki and Fukuoka

remember to try the Tori and horse sashimi at Kagoshima

wat is ur plan for getting to Aso? coz it seems like the train line from kumamoto to aso is still down:
https://www.japan-guide.com/news/0035.html

ur nagasaki is a day trip from fukuoka? dun think u have time for huis ten bosch. it is more abt 1.5hrs to get from nagasaki to huis ten bosch, and typically u would want to spend the whole day at the theme park.
i would suggest u just focus on the places within nagasaki city. and maybe go up mt inasa in the evening for the night view. if not, u can visit huis ten bosch from fukuoka (abt 2hrs by train) on some other days, but have to drop some other places.
Aso ? just wanna go ssrr.. i saw got Bus schedule from one of the stations.

i was thinking of dropping Atomic bomb museum and jus go Huis Ten Bosch.
Ya, staying at Fukuoka Hakata station.

because going to Beppu from Yufuin.. erm.. like quite far.. i just wanna chill and relax at Yufuin.. since the first day going yufuin will be afternoon liao..

am going over Yufuin from Kumamoto.
My stays are pretty fixed. am leaving in 3 days time.

erm.. so Huis Ten Bosch? Drop nagasaki city?

Quick question, what kind of jacket to recommend for Japan (Osaka, Kyoto, Shizuoka, Tokyo) next week, 15-25C range (and wet too)?


Another one, I'd be transiting at Haneda and then to Itami. I can't get a ICOCA card at Itami (only Kansai which has JR West) right?

I have little driving experience so I was wondering is it easy to drive around Hokkaido?

Don't drive in winter. Other than that its fine

I think you can buy icoca cards at the Osaka monorail that links Itami. Else get it at any subway or jr station machine.

No major damage to tourists spots or major transportation routes caused by Trami. Hopefully, people there are okay. Really sad man

D12 Fukuoka || FLY SG
for D8, u can just head straight from hakata to huis ten bosch, no need to go to nagasaki.
personnally, i would drop some of the places in fukuoka city and free up a day for nagasaki city. atomic bomb museum is worth a visit if u have not been to hiroshima one, and mt inasa night view is one of the top 3 night view in japan

imo, any kind also can.

for my time in japan during nov periods (15-3 degs), i usually do 3 layers. (t-shirt, pull over and a bomber/harrington.)

so oct, 2 layers or 1 should be enough. Key is to use "layers". Bring multiple t shirts, 1 or 2 thin pull over and 1 jacket. In the even theres a sudden huge drop in temp, wear 3 layers. else, just wear t shirt and pull over or t shirt and jacket only. If hot, just wear t shirt and bring a jacket (incase it gets colder in the night).

This way, type of jacket becomes irrelevant. If rain, can't do much anyways. just use an umbrella. (get from 100 yen shops)

This monk is real one? She just stands there with no facial expression.
I might see her next month and drop her some offerings.
Usually what's an acceptable range? 500Yen?
