JR north kyushu pass (kokura to kumamoto)

Dear All

I have a plan to kyushu. I will travel in kitakyushu (hotel @ kitakyushu)
If i buy JR north kyushu,
can I use shinkansen from kokura to kumamoto ?

thank you


Hi Dinja,

The Shinkansen between Kokura and Hakata is not covered by the JR Kyushu pass, as it is part of the JR west Shinkansen. You can use the Shinkansen starting from Hakata.

Hope this helps,
