Kita Kyushu
Accident Originally, I booked the trip to Kyushu because the flight tickets were cheap. I didn't expect that I would miss the plane (crying). In the end, I had to buy a transfer ticket from Hong Kong to Fukuoka, which cost me an extra 3000 RMB (my heart is bleeding). Luckily, I went to Victoria Peak and the night view over there cured my injured soul.
