Kumamoto Shinkansen Train Package

Round trip train from Fukuoka and Waku Waku pass

Fukuoka & Kumamoto 40 Booked

  • Get the ultimate convenience for a stress-free ride from Hakata to Kumamoto with express round trip Shinkansen train tickets
  • Enjoy the Waka Waka 1 day pass for unlimited travel on the city's buses, trains and trams
  • Explore the city with the famous Kumamon mascot, Japan's most popular bear
What We Love:

Located in the center of Kyushu Island, the name Kumamoto means 'origins of the bear' - so it's no surprise then that the cute black bear with red cheeks known as 'Kumamon' is the beloved mascot of the city. The pride of the city is Kumamoto Castle - the 400 year old castle is known to be one of the most beautiful in Japan. At the heart of the city, hundreds of blossoms fill the castle grounds during the cherry blossom season. Other noteworthy landmarks are Suizenji Gardens, Shiki no Sato Park, Kumamoto Prefectural Traditional Crafts Center and Hasokawa Gyobutei. In addition, with the one day Waka Waka pass, you get unlimited travel on all buses, trams and trains in the city!
