I'd say it looks pretty good. For May 10, you might want to put the Fukuoka Tower last. The best time if the weather is good is to go up just before sunset and watch the city change from day to night.
For May 11, you could add more if you like. For Dazaifu, be sure to see the shrine garden in addition to the shrine. You could if you want continue farther south to Yanagawa and ride the nice canal boats there. It's a bit unclear how much shopping you want to do, but the stores are open til 8 PM.
The Nanzoin Temple you have for May 12 is one of the highlights of Kyushu - yet still mostly unknown to most. It's also just a minute or two walk from the train station.
Getting to Uminonakamichi will be a bit time consuming though. You can get there by train, but the ferry from the Bayside Place pier might be more enjoyable.
For Hiroshima, a lot of the places you mention are all together. The Shukkeien Garden is very nice, but if you can fit it in, the Mitakidera Temple there is also an amazing sight and worth your attention.

You also might consider seeing Iwakuni on the way back from MIyajima to Kyushu.

The only snag I see is trying to see both the Beppu Hells and Aso in one day.
