If a picture is worth a thousand words, then how many words is a video worth?  Below are the “One Day in Kyushu”, and Kyushu OLLE videos, which show some of the most beautiful places in Kyushu.  Also below, those videos you can see two links, one to a selection of Oita Prefecture videos and the other to a selection of Kagoshima videos.


The Japanese yen is used. You can exchange your currency into yen at any bank, as well as many hotels. However, it’s better to obtain Japanese yen prior to your visit.

It is sometimes difficult to communicate in any language other than Japanese. English is to some extent accepted at hotels, particularly those that cater to foreign tourists. However, the general level of English has improved and in most situations you’ll be able to make yourself understood using gestures! Of course that’s part of the fun of foreign travel.
