Oita Prefecture in Kyushu is known for its abundance of tourist spots. We will show you how to get to Oita from Fukuoka Airport. There are two types: "train" and "highway bus". *Recommended routes vary depending on your destination, so let's take a look.

③Advance reservations are required for the bus. Please make a reservation in advance from a multilingual reservation site.

④If you have not made a reservation in advance, purchase it at the ticket office in front of the exit.

2. If the destination is other

(1) Fukuoka Airport International Terminal ~ Hakata Station

①Take the free shuttle bus from international flights to domestic flights.

② Get off at the last stop, walk a little, and you'll see the entrance to the subway. I head to the ticket gate. I will buy a ticket to Hakata Station.

③This is the first train, so you can take the train from either platform.

④Get off at Hakata Station, which is two stations away.

(2) Hakata Station - Oita (by express bus)

If you want to take the express bus that goes directly to Oita, go to Hakata Bus Terminal, which is a 3-minute walk from Hakata Station.

① Go outside and go to the terminal building. The bus stop is on the 3rd floor.

②If you have not yet made a reservation, purchase it at the counter or ticket vending machine.

③For Oita, take bus stop 34. Please show your ticket to the driver and get on the bus.

④This is a reserved seat.

(3) Hakata Station - Oita (by limited express train of "Nippo Main Line" and "Kyudai Main Line")

① Take the clockwise train ``Sonic'' to Oita, Nakatsu, Usa, Kitsuki, Beppu, Saiki, etc.

②For Hita, Yufuin, etc., take the counter-clockwise limited express train ``Yufuin no Mori'' or ``Yufu.''

③Go to the sales counter at JR Hakata Station and purchase a limited express ticket.

④ Pass through the ticket gate with the train ticket and limited express ticket stacked on top of each other.

⑤ In the case of Sonic, there is a switchback at Kokura Station on the way, so be careful. At Kokura Station, the direction of the train will change to the opposite direction, so you will need to change the direction of your seat. Return the seat's ricklining, step on the lever under the aisle, and rotate the seat. This is done by the passenger himself.

In April 2018, the "Inbound Promotion Association OITA" was established as a collection of individuals and companies in Oita Prefecture that promote inbound tourism (travel by foreign visitors to Japan). Later, in July 2023, it was reorganized and renamed as the General Incorporated Association "Inbound National Promotion Council" and focused on four issues in the tourism industry: "Developing tourism human resources," "Discovering tourism materials and collecting information," and "Disseminating information and promoting." In order to solve the problem of "improving the receiving environment," we are developing various projects nationwide based on specific measures.
