Kurume is a nice little city. Plenty of temples there. Spent quite a bit of time in Kumamoto city as well. Also spent quite a bit of time photographing at Mt. Aso. Did lots of photography in Omuta, which is right close to Kumamoto border. There a some nice lovely old abandoned coal mines there. I've got some images from a show I did there on my website. Will head there next summer... oooh but don't really care for the humidy then!
