Kyushu is the southernmost island of Japan. Volcanism is manifest here: Mt Aso in the centre of the island is an active volcano. The subtropical climate makes the island suitable for rice, tea, tobacco and silk. The island is prone to typhoons and heavy rainfall.
The Kyushu Nature Trail ventures into the mountains, passes hot springs, and explores several national parks.
