JR Hakata Station is Fukuoka’s biggest and the busiest in Kyushu. First opened in 1889, the station provides access to all of Kyushu as well as the rest of Japan with the Shinkansen. It’s also the key station for travelling around the city. It was remodeled in 2011, creating more space, more platforms, more shops, and more restaurants. The station has a modern, open feel, and even at night it’s bright and welcoming.
