An important gateway for trade and travel between Honshu and Kyushu, the city of Kitakyushu has an old industrial waterfront and provides access to a number of natural sites across the wider region.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Kitakyushu Museum of Natural History & Human History and Yukawa Family Old Residence. Get some historical perspective at Former Kubota Family Residence and Tokoji Temple. Change things up with these side-trips from Kitakyushu: Usa (Ajimu Budoushu Koubou & Usajingu Shrine), Shimonoseki (Kanmon Bridge, Maeda Cannon Historic Site, &more) and Taizo-ji Temple (in Bungotakada). Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to Hofu tenman-gu, contemplate the long history of Hagi Station, step into the grandiose world of Ruins of Hagi Castle, and take an in-depth tour of Hagi Meiringakusha.

To see maps, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Kitakyushu visit website.

Tumon, Guam to Kitakyushu is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Chamorro Standard Time to Japan Standard Time, which is usually a -1 hour difference. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from Tumon in September, with highs in Kitakyushu at °C and lows at °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Sun) early enough to drive to Fukuoka.

The largest city on the island, Fukuoka formed through the merger of two former cities that had grown up either side of the Naka River.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Miyajidake Shrine and Hakozaki Shrine. Do some cultural sightseeing at Nanzoin and Nagoya Castle Ruins. Change things up with these side-trips from Fukuoka: Takeo City Library (in Takeo), Yoshinogari-cho (Road Station Yoshinogari "village of sasanqua", Yoshinogari Historical Park, &more) and Karatsu (Karatsu Shrine, Old Oshima House, &more). There's much more to do: head outdoors with Tsutsukihama Beach, get engrossed in the history at Fukuoka City Museum, enjoy the sand and surf at Ohama Beach, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Tanjoin.

To find where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, use the Fukuoka road trip website.

You can drive from Kitakyushu to Fukuoka in 1.5 hours. Other options are to take a train; or take a bus. In September, plan for daily highs up to °C, and evening lows to °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
