Enjoy a Discount Kyushu Trip with “Kyushu Fukko Wari” Part II!
The number of tourists in Kyushu had plummeted due to the successive earthquakes that started in Kumamoto and Oita Prefectures on April 14, 2016 (Kumamoto earthquakes). In an effort to bring back tourists to the Kyushu region, “Kyushu Fukko Wari (restoration discount)” was offered to the public starting on July 1, 2016. Its popularity was such that discount coupons were completely sold out within a few hours on the very first day of the sale. Photo: flickr.com
And “Kyushu Fukko Wari Part II”, offered in late July 2016, has been as popular as the preceding offer. If you use “Kyushu Fukko Wari Part II” currently on sale, the applicable travel period overlaps with the summer vacation season.
