For the second part of our honeymoon series, we visited Japan for the second time. Nonetheless, it was our first time in the Kyushu Region (southern Japan), and the Fukuoka Prefecture. We were able to score cheap tickets from Manila via Cebu Pacific (approximately $120 each person, round-trip) and the trip was just in time for Japan’s Golden Week, when the wisterias of the Kawachi Fujien were expected to be in full bloom.
