questions & answers: general japan travel



Hi. While I stay in Hakata, I would like to make a day trip to Yanagawa to try the "boat cruise along the canal".

I need to take a Nishitetsu train to this station "Nishitetsu yanagawa" station. Strange thing is, under hyperdia, I cannot find any station by this name and I also cannot find any station by this name when I browse the official Nishitetsu Japan website.

Are you able to advise what is the actual name of the train station?


Hi there,

Its written Nishitetsu-Yanagawa or NISHITETSUYANAGAWA in Hyperdia.

There are direct trains to there from Tenjin.

Hope this helps,
