TRANSPORTATION

The subway connects Fukuoka Airport directly with the city center. A 100-yen bus also operates between Hakata and Tenjin. We also recommend taking a cruise to get a taste of the resort life, and enjoying the city with ease via sightseeing taxi.

Subway

From Fukuoka Kuko(airport)station it takes 5 minutes to Hakata station, and 11 minutes to Tenjin station. The subway runs every 3-6 minutes during rush-hour and 6-8 minutes during the day. The fare starts at 200yen and there is a saver ticket called "Otonari Ticket” offering half discount(100yen)to next station.
