Covid-19 has hit us hard with zero inbound visitors..
But we are ready and standing by for when the sky will open again.
Billie Bee Bus, our Toyota Coaster camper, is a safe and comfy way of transport (and more) for up to 8 adults.
Looking forward to meeting you.

See here below some ideas: 

Itoshima by the sea, Fukuoka.

Hiking at Itoshima.
So rural but still so close to downtown Fukuoka City.

Campground near Mt Aso, Kumamoto.
Car-tent combo is fun, but exploring Kyushu by means of a campervan has definite more options.

Saga Prefecture. Waterfront parking.
Sharing the night together.
Bonus: A nice, really nice, hot spring in walking distance.
Can't be any better.
Kyushu is a camper paradise.

Keen to explore what other food than sushi is out there?

So many trails, so few people.
Even all by yourself: " You Never Walk Alone ".

Hiking at central Kyushu.

Keen to do some birdwatching?
Keen to see what else Mother Nature has to offer in Kyushu?
See what Marijke managed to capture on camera: 

We'll show you.

Sunset at Itoshima, Fukuoka.
Making travel plans for tomorrow.
Where would you like to go?

Springtime Snaps and Chats

Springtime Snaps and Chats 

Billie Bee at Hitoyoshi.
To be fair, this picture was taken in January.
BUT.. i have to share this now.
Today as i am writing this, it is 2 days after the disastrous floods that hit Hitoyoshi in Kumamoto Prefecture.
That road, on top of the riverbank, got totally submerged. 
Too many lost their lives.
Our thoughts are with the people so badly hit and hurt.

What will be around the corner?
Main roads in Kyushu are a charm to drive: hardly ever do we experience traffic jams.
And about the scenery....? Come and check it out.

During a layover stop during a boat delivery from Niigata to Fukuoka.
We rented locally a car for the day and explored Shimano Prefecture.

Always happy to see the paddies being prepped for 
the new rice-planting.

Billie Bee parked at a " crowded " parking lot near 
the Kasagawa River in Saga Prefecture.
Spick-and-Span washrooms.
Marijke took some nice bird pictures.

Ajisai  in Fukuoka
Never ever seen such a huge one. Yes, it is 1 flower.

Look left, look right.
Hydrangeas all over the place.

On top of a pretty flower.
A salute from Mr Froggy.
It's been a wet rainy season so far.
