Osaka to Fukuoka possible?

Hi, could you please inform the best way to go from JR Namba station in Osaka to Fukuoka?
Checked hyperdia, but not sure if i can use jr pass


Hi there,

For Fukuoka, you should look for the station Hakata (the old name for 1/2 of what is now Fukuoka city). Here is a sample itinerary from JR Osaka Namba to Hakata valid for a Japan Rail Pass. I recommend using the Sakura Shinkansen if your schedule allows it.

Hope this helps!

Yes you can use the pass.

Just FYI, You can go to Hyperdia and just plug in your starting point and end point, plus date/time that you like. But be sure under "More Options" to deselect "Nozomi..." since you can't ride that on the Pass.
For Fukuoka, there are many open parks, shopping, seaside historical areas, and urban neon. See this site as a good guide.

For Fukuoka, don't miss the Nanzoin Temple which is one of Japan's finest yet almost totally unknown to the outside world and completely FREE!

Look into a Fukuoka Tourist City Pass also.

You can also see a lot of previews on the best there is to see here.

In terms of history and varied points of interest, Nagasaki is really the most interesting city on the island. It is worth a couple days to see the city, and another day to see areas nearby like Shimabara/Unzen or whatever interests you. Gunkanjima, while it takes 3 hours, will blow your mind.
