What is Fukuoka Open Top Bus?

1.The first Japanese-manufactured Open Top Bus in Japan!

It is a two-story, open top bus which guides passengers around to the main sights in Fukuoka city, “The gateway to Asia”. It visits locations such as Tenjin, Hakata, and the seaside areas!

This open top bus is the first domestic and manufactured on special request. From a vantage point of about 3.2 meters up, you can get a taste of Fukuoka’s cityscape, one which is out of the norm! Enjoy city sightseeing along with nature and the wind in your hair. It’s like an amusement park attraction, and is just a joy to ride!

2.Guided tours!

On the Fukuoka Open Top Bus, a “bus announcer”, called a “basuana” in Japanese, will provide guidance along the tour! These live hosts will introduce Fukuoka’s charm, seasonal information, and share recommended tourist spots along routes.
