    It's a small hotel, but convenient for budget travellers. The hotel is very close to a tram station and Kumamoto Station. Free car parking is available. Furthermore, you can take a public bath of Hotel Honjin for free, if you like.

    We decided to take today as a recovery day so we slept in a little and went for a leisurely breakfast before heading out from our hotel. We were able to walk to all of our destinations today. Our first stop was the Hakata Machiya Folk Museum. This museum introduces the daily life and culture of Fukuoka City during the Meiji and Taisho periods. Craft products and souvenirs such as Hakata Ori (folk woven textile) and Hakata dolls were on sale. Our next stop ...

    ... we hopped onto a bus that took us to the starting point of our boat ride along the network of canals that flow through the city. It was a beautiful sunny day - perfect! There were about a dozen of us that filled the river boat called "donko bune" and we set off on a quiet peaceful journey along a very picturesque route. The boat was propelled by a man in traditional dress using a long bamboo pole. Our "driver" kept up a steady dialogue in ...

    ... Mt Aso is active and was currently smoking so they had got a no go zone for a kilometre around the volcano which was a shame. There is a chairlift which takes you right to the crater rim but this was obviously closed. Everywhere was so green with hills and craters everywhere. We climbed up a lot of steps to reach the top of one old crater. From here we had a great view of the smoking volcano. We then walked around the ...

    ... through and is famous for it's many onsen. Everywhere were ducts letting out steam and signs for onsen. We stopped for lunch in a tiny cafe. To my horror, I found out the local speciality meat. Most things on the menu were horse and there was no way my favourite animal would ever end up in my stomach. Luckily they had some fried chicken and vegetable croquettes. Dave decided to try horse meat with rice which apparently was good. We had a look in some gift ...

    Himeji to Kumamoto... I did mention the castles?

    ... the sun ( at last!) It was a typical Japanese affair, no shoes inside, your given a bag to carry them in during your visit, it was again very busy but very organised with people guided around pinch points to prevent overcrowding. The actual castle looked great with its white plaster cladding and decoration, all round a wooden frame as most if not all Japanese castles were? It made for a really good visit and the sunshine helped, ...
