Sakura Trains from Osaka Station to Hakata (Fukuoka)


Now I have the answers to a direct train on Sakura can you please confirm if that is correct:-

I will go to Osaka Station and board the Sakura trains which runs every hour to Hakata.

I can reserve my seats in any train station before I depart or have to be in Osaka Station?



Hi Monica,

That's all accurate, the only addition is that Shinkansen such as the Sakura Express depart from Shin-Osaka station which is a different station all together from Osaka.

You can reserve your seats at any JR station nation wide for your travels.

All the best!
