Hi there,

All of these places are covered by the Northern Kyushu pass. You can either buy a 3-day (8.500 yen) or 5-day(10.000 yen) version.

If you wish to purchase one, please send us an e-mail at support@jrpass.com with your name, address and pass you wish to purchase.

We will take care of the rest from there.

Hope you find this useful,
Daniel

Hello Daniel,

If I buy the pass now, where do I collect the pass?
I will be in Fukuoka on 16 December, 9 p.m. Do I collect it at the airport?

My child is 14-year-old, does he qualify for a child pass?

Thankyou.

Hi again,

We will send you the pass by FedEx, this way you always have it by hand.

Children below the age of 12 can qualify for a child ticket, your 14 year old will require a normal pass.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Thanks Daniel, I am still deciding whether to buy the 3 or 5 day pass. How many days before I leave Singapore must I buy the ticket (in order that it reaches me in time?)

Does this ticket cover the direct train to Huis Ten Bosch?

Or does it only cover the train to Sasebo?

Thanks again.

Hi again,

Shipping to Hong Kong takes 2 business days. Details are here: http://www.jrpass.com/delivery

You can indeed use the direct train to Huis Ten Bosch but you can also go via Sasebo if you prefer.

Kind regards,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,

I live in Singapore. I suppose it will also take 2 days. so Will I be able to use the pass (whatever you are going to send me), or do I have to exchange for some tickets?

Can I reserve seats for this pass?

Also, will this pass cover going to Yanagawa? ( Nishitetsu line)?

THankyou,

Kaede

Hi there,

We will send you an exchange order (XO), you can turn this in for the JR Kyushu rail pass in Japan (just like any other JR Pass).

Seat reservations can be made, free of charge.

Please do note that non-JR lines (this is mainly the Nishitetsu in Kyushu) are not included.

Hope this helps :)
