Travel Agents Explore Kyushu: The Land Of Fire And Water

Published on : Monday, December 11, 2017

download (1)A group of 8 travel agents from Australia returned from a 6-day familiarisation tour to Japan’s southern island of Kyushu flying with Japan Airlines. The tour was the second of two, fully hosted by Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) to allow top scoring agents of the Japan E-Learning to experience the country’s regional charms.

 

 

Kyushu is the land of fire and water; rich in natural beauty, active volcanoes, and some of the nation’s best onsen (natural hot springs).

 

 

The agents stayed in a traditional ryokan (Japanese-style inn) in Kagoshima and experienced the therapeutic benefits of sunaburo, sand baths with heated volcanic sand. In Kumamoto, they visited the ancient samurai district of Chiran and one of Japan’s best loved castles, Kumamoto Castle.

 

 

Their tour ended in the island’s transport hub and largest city, Fukuoka. They enjoyed a punt cruise down the Yanagawa River and admired the late autumn colours. They shopped at department stores in Tenjin and explored the Christmas Markets.

 

 

Throughout the trip they were treated to a wide range of Japanese cuisine which included the famous Hakata ramen, hot-pot at an izakaya (Japanese pub) with all-you-an-drink, and grilled eel bento boxes.

 

 

The trip was supported by Japan Airlines, Hilton Hotels and Prince Hotels.
