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.
Fukuoka Asian Art Museum and Kitakyushu Museum of Natural History & Human History will appeal to museum buffs. Do some cultural sightseeing at Mojiko Retro and Kyushu National Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Fukuoka: Dazaifu Tenman-gu (in Dazaifu) and Kyushu Railway History Museum (in Kitakyushu). The adventure continues: go for a walk through Ohori Park, take an in-depth tour of Onojo Cocoro no Furusatokan City Museum, and buy something for everyone on your list at Tenjin Underground Shopping Center.

The hilly port city of Nagasaki has become known internationally as one of the two Japanese cities to be destroyed by an atomic bomb towards the close of World War II.
Start off your visit on the 14th (Sun): stroll around Nagasaki Peace Park, take an in-depth tour of Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum, take in the awesome beauty at Mt. Inasa, then see the interesting displays at Dejima, and finally take in nature's colorful creations at Glover Garden. Here are some ideas for day two: indulge in Japan's hot spring tradition at some of the top local onsens, then explore the activities along Obama Onsen Carbonated Spring, then see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Catholic Church Hongouchi.
