Highlights of Kyushu P.2 #sp

Day three aka Train day, we took a total of 5 different trains that day. Never knew that there were so many kinds of trains in Japan. The previous time, all I took was Shinkensan which is like the regular Japan bullet train, so this was definitely an eye-opener! Here's 3 of my fav:
Hayato no Kaza This first sightseeing train Hayato no Kaza has a modern exterior and it's fitted with large floor-to-ceiling windows which allows us to appreciate the dynamic nature of Kagoshima to the fullest. We took this train from Kagoshima Central Station to Yoshimatsu! 
Limited Express Shinpei  Then was the ride on the Limited Express Shinpei to Hiltoyoshi station. We were rewarded with this breathtaking view high up in the mountains. It was voted one of Japan's 3 best sceneries from the train window :) 
Limited Express Yamaasemi Kawasemi

It’s been a week since I'm back from Kyushu and I'm absolutely missing everything there. Didn’t expect myself to be able to return to Japan so soon since my previous trip happened in April just earlier this year but I'm definitely not complaining. There's just so much to explore in this land of the rising sun and I aim to return every year. It's officially my favourite country to travel to :)

Kyushu is the southwestern-most of Japan’s main islands that has a mostly subtropical climate. It’s known for its active volcanoes, beaches and natural hot springs such as those at Beppu. Its city of Fukuoka is home to museums, mega-malls and Kushida-jinja, an 8th-century Shinto shrine located in Hakata-ku. Kushija-jinja is dedicated to Amaterasu and Susanoo, they are a major deity of the Shinto religion. Took an overnight flight via Singapore Airlines. The flight was about 7hrs and it was a direct flight to Fukuoka for those who asked. There is only 1 flight in and out daily so…
