How to get to Hiroshima from Fukuoka?


Fukuoka on Kyushu Island in the southern part of Japan provides easy access to Hiroshima. To get to Hiroshima from Fukuoka City, you have two options: by train or by bus. In one of our trips to Japan, we visited Hiroshima from Fukuoka then continued our travel going north to Osaka, Kyoto and Tokyo. In this travel guide blog, I will help you with useful information on how to get to Hiroshima from Fukuoka by bullet train or Shinkanken and by bus.

WHAT'S COVERED IN THIS FUKUOKA TO HIROSHIMA TRAVEL GUIDE BLOG 2020?


FUKUOKA TO HIROSHIMA BY BULLET TRAIN


In our case, we went to Hiroshima coming from Fukuoka City.

Upon arrival at the Fukuoka international airport terminal, take the free shuttle bus to the domestic terminal where you will find the subway station. From here, take the subway train to Hakata Station which is the main station in Fukuoka City. Travel time is around 10-15 minutes from the airport to Hakata Station and fare is 260 JPY. Alternatively, you may also take a taxi or a private airport transfer from the airport to Hakata Station if you're traveling with kids, senior citizens and if you have huge luggages with you.

Using our 7-day Whole Japan JR Pass, we took the Shinkansen from Fukuoka’s Hakata Station to Hiroshima Station. Travel time takes about 60 to 70 minutes. That's how easy and convenient to travel from Fukuoka to Hiroshima.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • We used a 7-day Whole Japan JR Pass because our route is Manila - Fukuoka - Hiroshima - Osaka - Kyoto - Tokyo - Manila. Book DISCOUNTED JR Pass here!
  • If you have a JR Pass, you can also use it in exploring Hiroshima by taking the Hiroshima Sightseeing Bus for free. You can also use the pass in taking the ferry for free to Miyajima Island which is one of the top tourist destinations in Hiroshima.
  • If you don’t have a train pass, the Shinkansen ticket costs around 8,500 JPY per person for unreserved seat per way.
  • If you plan to just explore Fukuoka, Hiroshima and Yamaguchi Prefecture, you may choose to avail the JR Hiroshima Yamaguchi Area Pass which comes in a 5-day validity. This pass will provide you with unlimited rides on the Sanyo Shinkansen, Express Trains, Rapid Services, local trains, bus lines within Hiroshima and Yamaguchi. and even the JR West ferry to Miyajima island.
  • If your trip is just within Fukuoka and Hiroshima, I highly recommend that you get the JR Hiroshima Yamaguchi Area Pass. This pass will certainly save you a lot on travel expenses. Book DISCOUNTED JR Hiroshima Yamaguchi Area Pass here!

WHICH ONE IS BETTER? BY BUS OR BY TRAIN?


For me, it depends on your preference. If you want to save on time, take the Shinkansen trains. Although it is expensive, it will save you a lot on travel time. And if you have a rail pass, it won't be that expensive if you will be able to maximize the use of the pass.

If you're a budget traveler and don't mind spending hours in a bus, take the bus. This will save you a lot on travel expenses.

Me, I prefer to use train passes as it comes cheap if you plan your trip and your itinerary well.
