Getting around Fukuoka is easy thanks to well-established subway and bus systems. A comprehensive network of city buses is operated by Nishitetsu, with the main bus terminal located at Hakata station.

The city's subway system has three main lines, Kuko (airport), Hakozaki, and Nanakuma. Fukuoka's Hakata Station is also the last stop on the Nozomi Shinkansen bullet train from Tokyo, making travel between these two cities easy.

The city centre is quite compact and can easily be navigated on foot. Bicycles are also a popular means of getting around the city centre. Taxis are available but offer a more expensive means of transport in Fukuoka.
