8 day tour in Kyushu

Hey everyone, i'm planning on visiting Kyushu from the end of March till early April. I've made a itinerary but would like advice whether this would work or not and other places i should check out.

I cannot use the JR passes as I work in Japan so I need to consider the travelling times into account tooSo far there is the seishu 18 pass I could get for 5 days or the SUN Q PASS(bus) for 6 days(buy it two times) to move between the cities.

Here's my itinerary.

Flying into Nagasaki

Nagasaki 1.5 days

Hakata 2 days

Kumamoto 1 Day

Beppu 2 Day

Fukuoka> Flying out

Day 1(29)

Landing in Nagasaki at 1pm -tour around the city and visit the peace park

Day 2(30)

Spend a day at Huis Ten Bosch

Day 3-4?(31-1)

Head to Fukuoka early morning> spend some time at Ohori Park for the Sakura blossoms, the Canal City.

Should i stay here for one day or two days? are there any places you would recommend?

Day 5(2)

Head to Kumamoto early morning . Visit Kumamoto Castle, Gyobu-Tei residence

Day 6&7(3-4)

Leave for Mt.Aso do the hike then leave for Beppu in the evening .

Use day 7 for the jigoku+money park

Day 8 (5)

Head to Fukuoka to catch my flight home

Why not visiting Kagoshima?

thanks for the replies, Normadroaming!

I just wanted to get the most out of Nagasaki, Fukuoka, Yufuin&Beppu this time round so I'll leave Kagoshima till I visit Kyushu next time.

On Day 4 you might go to Dazaifu.

Extending your Nagasaki area visit 1 day to include the Shimabara area or Arita pottery area

might be an idea.
