Early transport option to Fukuoka Airport 2019/10/28 20:28
Hello!

Our international flight out of Fukuoka is at 8:30am. What is our transport option from our hotel (Dormy Inn Hakata Gion) to the international terminal? We should check in at 5:30am ☹. I canft seem to find info re night buses.. How much is the taxi (with midnight charge)?

Thanks, Mel

You can get a subway leaving around 5:48 AM, getting you to the airport at 5:55 AM - you'd then need to take the free bus to the international terminal. You certainly don't need to be checking in 3 hours ahead of time. It's not a massive airport at all. Time wise a taxi is not needed. It would be more convenient though and only about 10 minutes. Up to you.
You should be able to check in 2 hours before easily without any hassle or rushing. Even 90 minutes before.

Hopefully you can see the sights of the city while there. You are staying very close to Gion Stn and right next to it is Tochoji, with Japan's biggest wooden Great Buddha (about 33 tons).

Lots of good places to explore.

Took a taxi from about the same area to the airport at 6AM for a 7:30AM flight to Tokyo so the domestic terminal and not the Int'l. At that time in the morning it was about 10 minutes and Y1100. I've also taken the subway from the Gion subway station to the airport for the same 7:30AM flight. It's a long walk from the Airport subway station to the bus stop though, so if you have a lot of luggage, I'd just take a taxi.

True with many interesting places in Fukuoka.. Unfortunately wefve only got 3 nights (2.5 full days) after 1 night in Kurokawa Onsen, 1 night in Yufuin and 2 nights in Beppu..
Will cram in the Yatai, seafood market, Temples and gardens, night illuminations, a bit of shopping..
As for going to airport, will take the taxi (2 pax). By the way, may I know what time does taxi midnight charges end? It takes around 15 min?
