↑ Return to Iizuka-shi


Iizuka has several stations, the biggest being Shiniizuka station which is a hub for morning commute.  Shiniizuka station directly links to Fukuoka’s Hakata station (30-50 minute commute depending on whether you take the express locomotive or the local disel electric locomotive) as well as surrounding cities such as Tagawa (15-30 minutes) and Nogata (15 minutes).

Iizuka Bus Terminal also allows for direct travel to Tenjin, Hakata, Fukuoka Airport and Tagawa as well as local buses to help you get around the city.  Both the railway and bus services are similar in price but the railway allows the luxury of avoiding traffic with its precise arrival times and rare delays.
