相島 Ainoshima Cat Island

So on my last day at Kyushu, I visited Ainoshima (相島) Cat Island! <3

 

DSCN1734From Hakata Station (Fukuoka’s main train station), we took the local train, transferred at Nakasu-Kawabata and sat all the way to the last station at Nishitetsu Shingu Station.

From here you have to take a community bus (100 yen per ride) that will take you to Shingu Port (10th stop in the 3rd column) in about 20 minutes.

You can find the Ferry Timings at the station to and fro Shingu Port 新宮and Ainoshima 相島.

When you stepped out of the Nishitetsu Shingu Station you will see this sign to the bus stop which is like 3 minutes away.

LOL!!! Sorry but I won’t be welcoming you here! 😛DSCN1739

So after taking the bus for about 20 minutes and 10 stop after, you will reach Shingu Port! Do stop by to see bus schedule back to Nishitetsu Shingu Station!
