Kumamoto Shinkansen Train Package

Travel from Fukuoka to Kumamoto and get unlimited access to public transports

Fukuoka & Kumamoto 107 Booked

Tour around Kumamoto with this pass that is inclusive of a round trip Shinkansen ride from Fukuoka and enjoy 24 hours of unlimited rides on the local buses, trains, and trams

  • Hitch an efficient and speedy round trip train ride on the Shinkansen between Hakata and Kumamoto
  • Use a day pass, affectionately called the "Waku Waku Pass" for unlimited travel on buses, trains, and trams in Kumamoto
  • Visit local attractions that offer discounts when you display your pass
  • Have the flexibility to redeem your voucher for your day pass at the Fukuoka Airport or have it mailed to a Japanese address
What We Love:

With the option to pick up your day pass at Fukuoka Airport right upon landing, or have it mailed to a Japanese address a day prior to your scheduled date, traveling in Kumamoto has never been easier. With your pass in hand, board the Tsubame Shinkansen that departs from Hakata Station bound for Kumamoto. In about 40 minutes, you will arrive in Kumamoto where you can visit the Kumamoto Castle - a 400 year old castle that is known to be one of the most beautiful castles in Japan. Kumamoto translated to the "origin of bears," and the infamous city mascot is a black bear that is appealing to both kids and adults. Your pass will also get you special discounts to admissions or other purchases in a list of attraction sites. In the evening, head back to Kumamoto Station and hop on your ride back to Hakata Station. By dinner time, you should have gotten back and will be just in time for other evening activities to put an end to a perfect day!
