The subway connects Fukuoka Airport directly with the city center. We also recommend taking a cruise to get a taste of the resort life, and enjoying the city with ease via sightseeing taxi.
（FUKUOKA OPEN TOP BUS）
Local buses mainly arrive and depart from Hakata Kotsu Center (Hakata station bus terminal) and Tenjin Bus Center. Nishitetsu Bus’s “Canal City Line Bus” runs between Hakata, Canal City Hakata and Tenjin is also convenient for sightseeing. There is a direct bus to the shopping mall “Marinoa City” in Nishi ward and Seaside Momochi.
You can go to Uminonakamichi and Shikanoshima Island by road, but we would recommend you to go by ferry. The ferry ride is a short 15 minutes and the terminals are conveniently located in Marizon（Seaside Momochi）and Bayside Place Hakata Futoh.
The basic fare for a standard taxi within the city is 570 yen. Premium taxis, which offer higher quality service than standard taxis, have a Hakata-ori design that conveys the culture of Fukuoka and its spirit of hospitality.
There are also many sightseeing taxis that offer tours of points of interest in small groups. Also recommended is the “Ramen Taxi,” a unique way to enjoy ramen restaurants in Fukuoka.
