    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.

  • From Hakata station there is actually a highway bus that goes all the way to Nagasaki. You can also take the Shinkansen, but the bus will be a lot less expensive. You can see some of the timetables here. I personally prefer the buses since you get a guaranteed seat and there aren't any transfers to worry about so if you want you can take a nap or enjoy the scenery more on the way there. You can view several of the highway bus schedules here: http://www.atbus-de.com.e.jo.hp.transer.com/times/ You can also use Hyperdia.com for the local train information to get there. I hope this helps.

    First, from Tokyo to Fukuoka. Since you'll be stopping by Kyoto and Hiroshima before arriving in Fukuoka, then the Shinkansen will be the best option for you - that is, if you bought your Japan Rail Pass beforehand. If you will go to Fukuoka straight from Tokyo, then air travel will be a cheaper option for you - and faster, too. There are several flights departing from Haneda Airports daily. Now, from Fukuoka to Nagasaki. The trains are an option, especially if you can buy the discounted tickets at http://www.jrkyushu.co.jp/train/yoyaku/local/. But if you will go around Nagasaki (Sasebo, Huis Ten Bosch, and/or Isahaya), I think the best option for you will be to purchase the 3-Day Northern Kyushu SunQ Pass and then board the bus at Hakata Bus Terminal. You can purchase the pass either at Fukuoka Airport, or online at http://www.sunqpass.jp/english/pass/index.html. Hope this helps.

Your fave autumn leaf spots

I know it's still hot right now in much of the country, but I'm already dreaming of the changing leaves (and cooler temps!) of autumn. What are your favorite autumn leaf spots across Japan? Here in Niigata I really like the scenery and colors around Lake Daigenta which is about a 30 minute drive from home!

Recommendation please for Effective JLPT study resources

Good day and happy summer to everyone! Please spare a moment to share your recommendations for effective JLPT preparation resources. I have been invited to work part time as an Assistant English Teacher even they knew I am not fluent in their language both written and verbal, but it was fun and I made it through. Since then, I came to appreciate teaching here but I was advised that I will be more effective and well compensated if I have an JLPT Certification. Please, would appreciate your recommendation as to where and how to map a successful study and preparation path. Also, I have a plan to volunteer and start up a reading and practice your everyday English in my community which is going to be once or twice a month program. Thank you in advance.

Therapy Cats

Hello! I heard it was hard to find apartments that accept pets in Japan. I have a therapy cat who will absolutely have to come with me on my journey. Does anyone know if Japan apartments recognize therapy cats or how hard would it be to get my baby accepted? Thank you for the help!
