My wife and I will be spending 5 days in Kyushu, travelling from Osaka. We would prefer to base ourselves in a central location and travel to other centres (by rail mostly) on a daily basis, probably in the northern part of Kyushu. Please recommend a suitable base .e.g. Would Kumamoto be a practical place to travel to most other northern centres such as Beppu, Nagasaki etc. It seems to be on a main rail line? Thanks.
Is anyone familiar with rail transportation around Fukuoka? I'm going to be living there for around 3 months, so I'm trying to figure out the details.
From where I'm staying, my destination would be Akasaka station, near the "heart" of the city.
From what I understand, I have 2 options:
I can walk 5 minutes to the local JR station, ride to Hakata station, and then transfer to the Kuko subway line until I reach Akasaka.
I can walk 15 minutes to the Nishitetsu Kaizuka line and ride the same subway train, without transfers, all the way to Akasaka. (At least, that's what it looks like based on their subway map. Please correct me if I'm wrong).
Here's my problem: Since I'm going to be staying for 90 days, I'd like to get a 90-day prepaid pass. So, if I choose the first option, will I need to get both a prepaid subway pass AND a prepaid JR pass? Or do they have a "one size fits all" pass that works for both? Both the JR and Subway sites aren't very helpful. Obviously I don't mind walking for 10 more minutes if it means I can save money.
Thank you in advance!
I'm flying into Fukuoka this September but my flight arrives too late for me to catch the last bus to Beppu (21:42 or 9:42PM). So I was looking for some advice. What do you think is the best way around that? Is there a way for me to get down there that late or a good place to stay in Fukuoka close to the airport with close bus/train access?
I was wondering what would be the best beach to visit for a young people. Any
place where you can get with JR. At the moment me and my friends are staying in
Kyushu, Karatsu and it doesn`t seem like a right place for us.
thank you for a reply
I'll be arriving at Fukuoka at 8am..
My itinerary so far as planned is:
Then move on hiroshima...
Just wondering. Is Fukuoka worth the stop or should i move on to Naga straight away on the first day?
Also Should I stop at Aso or Beppu?
I would appreciate it if someone can tell me easiest and quickest way, to get from Hakata Station to Costco. Costco is located in the Torius West Zone in Hisayama, Fukuoka-Ken.
dokoni arimasuka? Please answer in english...lol
I will be in Kumamoto for 5 days and maybe base myself in Fukuoka for two days. Hence, just wondering whether Fukuoka is a good base for travels out to Beppu, Nagasaki, etc? As I am on a budget, any travel plan/card/pass would you recommend and which are the must go places in the Kyushu region?
I am a bit last minute and I am leaving soon.
Thanks so much.
