Convenience matters

Travel is fun, and this pass lets it stay that way, taking away all your worries about getting around the beautiful island of Kyushu. Created exclusively for tourists, this pass lets you explore the south, north, or all of Kyushu in 3, 5, or 7 days: whatever your itinerary, consider your travel sorted.

Also, Kyushu is wonderful. The land of fire is well known for its indigenous art, craft, and drool-worthy food. From the world's largest active volcano 'Mt Aso' to the serene 'Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine', there's a lot to see and do here. Hence the truly wise (may) say, "Get the pass."
