DAY 2 – 
Departure from Paris, dinner, night, and breakfast on board. Short stopover in Asia. Arrival the next day, welcome, transfer, and check-in at the hotel. Fukuoka is a beautiful city and living there is very pleasant. We have a little over a day to discover some of its secrets. Motorcycle pickup on day 3, after a good night's sleep, much needed. In a country where driving is on the left, some guidelines will be welcome.
DAY 4 – 
 – 3h30
In the early hours, we start our first rides in Japanese style. By early afternoon, our arrival in Beppu is notably marked by the smell of sulfur and the numerous steam chimneys rising towards the sky. It's impossible to miss the Jigokumeguri, the name given to the eight "hells" due to the spectacular and colorful appearance of the waters, reaching temperatures of nearly 85°C.
DAY 6 – 
 – 4h45
We leave the volcanic heights to find, near Takachiho, the spectacular remnants left by the lava flows. Eroded over time by the Gokase River, the pyroclastic flows have transformed into deep narrow gorges where lush vegetation thrives. We'll indulge in a luxurious overnight stay in the Japanese Riviera of Miyazaki, which proudly displays its palm trees.
DAY 8 – 
 – 3h00
Once again, we alternate between highs and lows. We head towards Kagoshima, one of the southernmost cities in Kyushu. Known for its sunshine and its proximity to the Sakurajima volcano, which constantly emits smoke, it is nicknamed the "Naples of the East." This former feudal city is mostly associated with the last samurai, Takamori Saigo, in Japanese history, and the district where he lived just 150 years ago.
DAY 12 – 
 – 2h30
In the early morning, we discover some of the captivating places from which emerge the sulfurous waters with immense white fumaroles. We leave the "hell of Mount Unzen" for Nagasaki. Like Hiroshima, this city represents a formidable hope and fight for peace in the world. Western, captivating, moving, magical, dazzling, so many qualifiers that encourage the traveler to want to extend their stopover in this charming little town.
DAY 14 – 
 – 4h30
We continue on a few coastal roads before making a stop, in the late morning, in the Japanese capital of luxury ceramics. Depending on the regional schedule, an international hot air balloon gathering will occupy the rest of our day. Near Fukuoka, we spend our stopover in the last Ryokan.
DAY 16 – 
Final expenses, final moments, and it's on this last note that this wonderful journey comes to an end. Departure for a layover in Asia and return to Paris, on the same evening. An extended layover, optionally, can be considered in Tokyo.
