Kitakyushu Airport has a great accessibility to various tourist attractions across Kyushu, along with Shimonoseki in Yamaguchi prefecture.
Since its opening in 2006, it is the only 24-hour airport in the Kyushu area. Flights depart to five cities, both local and international including the Haneda Airport in Tokyo, including late night and early morning flights. Accessibility is not only limited to the Kitakyushu city area: it is also near other locations in Kyushu and also to Shimonoseki, which makes it an excellent starting point of your travels. The airport itself is also very close to the highway.
