Ky?sh? (??) is the southernmost of the four main islands of Japan. The climate is slightly warmer and more tropical than Honshu, and the southern and eastern coasts are regularly battered by typhoons each year. The terrain is generally mountainous with very fertile valleys much like the rest of Japan, except for the wide plain area at the top of the island - the location of the largest cities of Fukuoka and Kitakyushu.
There are 7 prefectures on Kyushu, plus nearby Okinawa:
The islands of Okinawa, leading southwest of Japan to Taiwan, are sometimes considered a part of Kyushu, although administratively they form a separate prefecture and the culture has little in common.
The Kyushu Rail Pass (http://www.jrkyushu.co.jp/english/kyushu_railpass.html) offers unlimited travel on JR Kyushu's lines, including the Kyushu Shinkansen but not the San'yo Shinkansen to Hakata. As of 2005, the pass costs ¥16,000 for five days; you'll have to travel quite a lot to make this pay off and most visitors, especially those not flying in directly to Kyushu, will find the ordinary Japan Rail Pass a better deal.
