Hi there,

For Fukuoka you will need the station "Hakata", which is the old name for Fukuoka. Here is a sample itinerary from Tokyo to Hakata. As you can see it will take around 6hrs on the bullets and require 1 change at Shin-Osaka. You may also want to investigate internal transfer flights if your are going to Fukuoka as soon as you arrive in Japan.

You can look up train timetables and costs at the Hyperdia travel planning website and learn how to use Hyperdia for Japan Rail Pass holders through our video blog.

Hope this helps!

Given the time it takes, a flight would make more sense. These days you can get some very cheap fares on Jet Star or Peach. There are also air passes from JAL and ANA, plus ANA's Experience Japan Fare.

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.
