Sasebo
Hi all, my name is Jayson. I'm currently in Sasebo area. Great site with allot of information. Although, I do ride a MTB.

I was looking for information on Kyushu island and I came across this site, because Im planing to try and ride from Sasebo, to Saga then down the west side down to Kagoshima then around to Oita and back to sasebo in 14 days.

(since Im in the millitary, I dont have the option to ride for more then 18 days, sucks, lol)

Swing through Kaimon and Chiran - did that ride in `99 from Kagoshima.

Great view of the Osumi Strait from Kaimon Dake`s summit, and the Kamikaze museum is certainly worth the peddle-effort.

Was in Kyushu last year during Golden Week. Beautiful. A couple of us decided to go all around Kaimon-dake. There is a very long, very dark tunnel, but it is navigable!

Many photos and these are geotagged.
