Tips for a trip to Nagasaki/Fukuoka/Saga/Oita?

We're trying to head down to Kyushu for a little break later this year, and if you've been to any of the abovementioned prefectures before (or even live there!) I'd love to hear your suggestions for cool things to do and see - preferably the cool spots that guidebooks or online resources might not cover! Thanks in advance!

Transportation

Bus commuter pass?

I see people with a bus commuter pass and I'm wondering if there's any information online about this? (I can find a lot of information about the train tekken commuter passes.) I want to see the prices and if it's worth it for me to buy one. If it matters, I'm looking for Yokohama area ones... Keikyu bus or Kanachu bus. (or is there one for all companies?)

Any good tips for a Shimane visit?

I'm getting one of my New Year's Resolutions ticked off, and have a short trip planned to Shimane in late May. I'm going to visit Matsue, Izumo and Yasugi. Apart from the main to-do's there, does anyone have any experience with some off the beaten path spots? Cute cafes, interesting museums, anywhere you'd like to share?

Trip to Miyazaki this summer. Any recommendations?

Heading to Miyazaki, Kyushu this summer (4 nights, staying in Aoshima). Any recommendations on places to eat would be much appreciated. Also, any sightseeing spots? The priority is surfing but we'll have a car and will still have time to travel around a bit. Cheers!

What's your recommendation for the best (cheap) restaurant in Osaka?

I have family visiting Osaka and I'm in charge of choosing the eating establishments... I'm not necessarily looking for Osaka-specialty foods (kushikatsu, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, etc.) Just some typical Japanese shokudo-style restaurants that really stand out in your mind. Also, I don't eat red meat so no tonkatsu / yakiniku / etc. please! And preferably near the city center (Osaka/Umeda station or Namba)! Thank you :)

A couple of days at Okinawa

Hello, everyone. I have been dreaming of going to Okinawa some day. I want to stay at a hotel for one or two nights, see and swim in a beautiful transparent sea with sand long beach. But unfortunately my dream never came true. I am told that Okinawa is super expensive and people usually book hotels, airline tickets and so on several months beforehand. I am not a rich person that's why I would like to travel econom level. Could anyone please give me some advice on going to Okinawa including some information about transport, hotels, beaches, food, souvenirs?

Meguro River cherry blossom, Tokyo - worth it?

Hi. I've got my mum and sister visiting me in Japan from tomorrow. Was thinking about taking them to see the cherry blossom along the Meguro River, basically because I've never been there during this season. However, if it's really crowded and a hassle to just walk around, maybe I might choose somewhere else. Anyone been? Is it worth a look?

Akita/Niigata in March

I´m planing to visit the Akita and Niigata prefecture at the end of March. What about the weather during that season? Is it still snowing? If yes how about the train situation? I guess because those prefectures are used to snow there will be no problem... Some experience of people living in these areas will be helpful!

Best onsen town near Tokyo with a lot of snow

Looking for recommendations for a nice onsen town / resort near Tokyo where I can see plenty of snow. Planning to go in February. It would be an overnight stay. Also, if the town has a bit of atmosphere and places to eat other than the hotel / ryokan, that would be even better. Cheers! Maybe around 3 hrs one-way (without flying) would be the maximum travel time in this case.

High quality Japanese restaurants in Tokyo

Looking for a classy Japanese restaurant that does set courses. The options seem so overwhelming and I usually don't go out for expensive Japanese food that I though I'd try and get some direct recommendations. Shinjuku, Shibuya, Daikanyama (south, southwest Tokyo station areas preferred). It's a bit of an occasion requiring of something traditional and sedate. Budget around 6000 yen a head. Cheers.

(Where/) are you celebrating Halloween this weekend?

Surprisingly there is a huge amount of Halloween events in Saitama this weekend. Its hard to choose which one to go to. The one I would love to go to is a little bit far away and a little bit too late for my young kids. It looks really awesome if anyone is in the Tokorozawa area: http://insaitama.com/event/exotic-halloween-seibuen-yuenchi-tokorozawa/ So its a toss up between a parade with trick or treat in Higashimatsuyama or a spooky night in Shinrin Park... Do you celebrate Halloween in Japan? How / Where?
