    I think to get from Fukuoka to Nagasaki by train you'll need to use Hakata Station (the one where the Shinkansen from Honshu stop). There are no Shinkansen that go from Hakata to Nagasaki so it will have to be an express train which takes around 2 hours and costs from around 4000 yen. It looks like Nishitetsu have a bus service from Fukuoka to Nagasaki for around 2,300 yen one way, and maybe takes up to 3 hrs. (Nishitetsu - http://www.nishitetsu.ne.jp.e.xk.hp.transer.com/kyushugo/fare/) If you don't mind the expense, I always think that that trains are easier to use in Japan, rather than the buses.

    You can use these sites to enter the exact place in Nagasaki where you want to go: https://world.jorudan.co.jp/mln/en/ http://www.nishitetsu.ne.jp.e.xk.hp.transer.com/kyushugo/times/ From Fukuoka Airport, you can take "Fukuoka Urban Expressway" directly (instead of using a bus or subway to either Hakata or Nishitetsu Fukuoka (Tenjin) Stations). 高速 (Kousoku), the highway express bus is convenient for when you have a lot of luggage and don't want to carry it around and transfer in train stations. One way to Nagasaki Station is 2570 yen, (141-151 minutes) but if you buy four one way tickets there is usually a discount.

    So sorry, I misunderstood your question at first. If you are coming from Hiroshima and want to use Shinkansen, you can either stop in Hakata (the center of Fukuoka City) or go directly to Shin Tosu Station by shinkansen. There you can change to the special express (tokkyuu) train towards Huis Ten Bosch or Sasebo on Nagasaki Honsen. The Kamome from Hakata might be a nice option? https://www.hakatastation.com/nagasaki-main-line-to-huis-ten-bosch-nagasaki/ It's possible to buy a discounted train ticket online. One way special express (tokkyuu) from Hakata to Nagasaki is as low as 2300 yen if you buy tickets seven days in advance at the JR website (can pay in a convenience store): http://www.jrkyushu.co.jp/train/yoyaku/local/ (The regular price is 4710 yen.) This discount service is also available for other destinations. Have fun!

    Try to search here. http://www.hyperdia.com/en/ it will guide you what train you will ride from your point of origin and tells also what time the train will arrive/depart. Enjoy.

  • If you're in Fukuoka, the cheapest option is the bus station. There's a bus center at Hakata and they have a bus that will take you there. Don't know as much about Tokyo, but I live near Fukuoka.

Effective cold medicine

Always nice to be handed a cold as you enter a 3-day weekend. I've been using the medicine (off the counter) in the image but it doesn't seem to have much clout. Does anyone have an cold medicine that they turn to in Japan that gets to work quickly?

Credit Card approval in Japan

Hello fellow gaijins! Has anyone experienced applying for a Japanese credit card? I applied last weekend for a jcb card and it was an onsite application. I received a phone call from them after 4 days verifying my information. Could this be a good sign that I might get approved for the card? To this date, it has been 4 days since they called and it's silence so far.
