Overview Itinerary of Northern Kyushu, Japan (Winter/Spring 2018)
Travelling with an Infant to Northern Kyushu (Japan)
Be sure to bookmark this page as I update my Itinerary of Northern Kyushu. It’s our first trip with Baby Evangeline and we went to a cold place for a road trip. What were we thinking of?! Baby Evangeline just turned 8 months old when we went.
We took a red eye flight from Singapore to Fukuoka with Singapore Airlines. We took a highway bus from Fukuoka airport to Nagasaki and travelled around Nagasaki on foot. Thereafter, we did a road trip from Nagasaki to Kumamoto, Mount Aso, Kurokawa, Yufuin and lastly back at Fukuoka. We travelled from 21 February to 1 March 2018.
It was winter going Spring. The temperature fluctuated between 2 to 15 degrees Celsius. There was a drop to -1, -2 degrees Celsius when it rained at Kumamoto. The rain followed us through to our last lap in Fukuoka.
