Hiroshima to Fukuoka

How long does it take to get to Fukuoka from Hiroshima?

What is the best way to travel there?

We have a JR Pass.

Thank you.

You can check the schedule here:

Just fill in leave from Hiroshima, going to Hakata. Check the box that says shinkansen, and "excepts Nozomi" because with a rail pass you can not use Nozomi trains.

Thank you for your information.

We checked the website. What we cannot understand is that it takes 5 hrs?

A previous posting said it only took 1 hr using the Hikari?

Please help us?

Thank you.

I think maybe you did not UNCHECK the box that says "limited express" and the system plugged you into a run that stops at many stations. I just ran it again and it seems to take about 1 hour, 10 minutes on the Hikari train, Kodama train takes over 2 hours because it stops more often.

So, on the web site, enter start at Hiroshima, Destination Hakata. Uncheck airlines, check shinkansen, uncheck Nozomi, uncheck limited express.

See if this link works, it's the results I got when I did it:
