Kokura Castle is really the only cultural sight around Kokura Station. While the castle wasn’t anything unique if one has visited a few Japanese castles, it provided a good centerpiece in the middle of the little fall colors that were left. It was under renovation,...More
Unfotunately the castle was closed until March 31 2019 so I was unable to visit the inside. The outside however looked very nice and well kept. The castle is located inside a nice park within a short walking distance from the JR station.
Staying in Kokura for a couple of nights, I first came across the castle whilst going on a stroll after dark. At night, the castle looks spectacular; with its' elevated position, the floodlit white walls truly stand out against the dark night sky and with...More
Within walking distance from the Kokura JR Station. Along the way, you will pass the massive covered arcade shopping as well as the big shopping mall that is adjacent to the attraction.
Combined entry fees may be bought. Very historical in nature and one of...More
Compared to Kumamoto Castle and Osaka Castle, which I visited before I came to this castle, surely this castle is a lot smaller. Inside this castle is a museum, well, almost all castles in Japan are museums I think so don't be disappointed about that...More

What are you going to do in Kisshoji Temple on 21? Other 3 in Kitakyushu is within walking distance from Kokura station. How are you going to Kisshoji? Seems too much on 23 in Nagasaki. Its technically possible, but it won't be practical for pleasure travel.

I will be staying at a friend's place in Kokura during my stay in Kyushu, so I will probably buy the 5-day Northern Kyushu pass. However I'm not sure what to do for the rest of my trip. Buying the 7 day JR pass wouldn't be good enough to cover me until the end, but a 14-day pass seems too much? (Plus I know I will be using non-JR trains for some parts.) Any ideas? I'm open to taking overnight highway buses if need be (doesn't seem bad for Kanazawa to Tokyo), but trains would still be my top...More

Why is the number one destination, Kyoto, missing from your itinerary? Have you been there before? If not, you should really include it. Think about shortening Okayama part and stay in Kyoto/Osaka for several days. Hiroshima/Miyajima is more impressive than Okayama as well. If I were you, I'd buy the 14 Day JR Pass and activate it on Day 3.
