WHAT KIND OF ACCOMMODATION WILL I STAY?
You will stay in a mix of Western hotels and traditional Japanese inns. In Western hotels rooms are twin or double sharing. In Japanese inns your family may stay in one room (up to 3 people per room) sleeping traditional Japanese futon-style. You will only share a room with your family or friends.
WHAT IS ONSEN (HOT-SPING) BATHING?
Kyushu is known as ‘onsen island’ so we’ve included some quality onsen on this tour. An onsen is a bathing pool using water from natural hot-springs. It’s a wonderful pleasure and there are many health benefits. If you feel uncomfortable being naked doing onsen bathing you can skip this activity and relax instead. We can also arrange a private bath for you if available (subject to additional charge). Feel free to contact us with any questions about hot-spring bathing.
HOW WILL I TRAVEL AROUND?
Private bus throughout the tour.
