The drive was one of the most beautiful drives I have ever made in Japan and the landscape was incredible. I was reminded of Hawaii with the volcanic valleys and lushness and also a little bit of Ireland with the green of the grass. We got back to Kumamoto late that evening so all in all a long day but well worth it. Have you been to Kumamoto or plan to go someday? Tell us what you did or ask us any questions in the comments below!
