3 Memorable Experiences Only Found In Kyushu

When you have travelled Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka, you will be itching to explore new places. Well, Kyushu is worth a visit if you are into nature and endearing cultures. Here are 3 funky experiences!

1) Eating At Yatai In Fukuoka

It is getting rare these days to find yatai (street stalls) where you can watch the chef in action, eat, drink and even mingle with the locals, but thankfully, yatai are quite common in the Tenjin and Nakasu areas of Fukuoka! Sink into the creamy comfort of tonkotsu ramen, dig into mouth-watering gyoza and grilled skewers, and savour delish shochu.

Intrigued? If so, head on down to the Fukuoka City Tourist Information Centre in Tenjin or Hakata to get a Yatai Meal Ticket!

2) Take A Sand Bath In Kagoshima

Onsens are a dime a dozen in Japan, but do you know that there's a special kind of sand bath in which you can be buried in sand that is heated by hot onsen water underground? This exclusive experience - sunamushi - is available in Ibusuki, a town that is easily accessible by train from Kagoshima City. So be sure to include this in your itinerary so that you can reap the health benefits of sunamushi.

What's more, you get to soak in an amazing sweeping view of the azure blue sea before you. Bound to make you feel refreshed in more ways than one!

3) Go Trekking In Kagoshima

Ever watched the movie "Princess Mononoke's Forest"? You will be delighted to know that the misty, moss-covered forests depicted in this Studio Ghibli are actually based on Yakushima, an island that has so much pristine forest that it is designated as a World Natural Heritage Site.

If you are a couch potato but still want to get up close and personal with ancient cedar trees - with the oldest Yaku-sugi tree being a whopping 7000 years old - don't worry. The path is thoughtfully paved with bridges and stairs, so you can reach these trees without exerting too much effort!
Kyushu may not be as well known as Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka, but it sure has a lot of great experiences to offer. Make it your choice destination!
