Let's discover the journey between Fukuoka and Kumanoto !

51 KM - 0H27 - Kurumeachikugo-Funagoya Station

Another town with a lot of onsen on offer, feel free to get off  and have a wander around and jump in a hot bath. Head east from here to the hills outside Yame town to discover some of the largest tea gardens in Japan as well as numerous burial mounds dating back to the 4th-7th centuries, dotted around the area.

69 KM - 0H31- Shin-Omuta Station

A town that prospered during the coal boom, hosting one of the biggest coal mines in Japan, Miike Mine, until its closure in 1997.



90 KM - 0H39 - Shin-Tamana Station

As with many bullet train stations, this is a few miles out of town so you would need to take a bus or taxi to visit the onsen in Tamana. See also Renge-in Tanjo-ji, a Buddhist temple with one of the largest Peace Bells in the world and a beautiful, modern 5-story pagoda nearby.



118 KM - 0H40 - Kumamoto Station
