Kyushu Onsen to Onsen
We meet in well-connected Fukuoka and quickly head out with an ride along the Chikugo River to an Edo-era town. After climbing up our only significant hill we descend to the town of Usa and visit a Shinto shrine dating back to 708. Now it's time for us to ride around the conical 731 m-high Mt. Futago volcano that has 28 ravines extending radially from the centre. Cycling around the perimeter allows us to avoid climbing and we can explore the beaches, ports and some hidden temples in the forest. This area is also very rural and known for producing scallions, leeks, tomatoes and prized kabosu limes.
