Fukuoka Airport facilities - translation help required

Hi everyone,

Hisashiburi ne.

Could someone please take a look at the following page and tell me whether

1. I could just use the showers at the TIME lounge for 840 yen without needing to pay the 1050 fee for the other facilities?

2. This area of the domestic terminal would be accessible to arriving international passengers?

1. It's not 100% clear if all you pay for a shower is 840 yen or not, but looking at a map, it seems you can access the shower rooms without entering the lounge, so my guess is that 840 yen is all it takes:

2. Definitely yes. Take a free shuttle from the International terminal.

Welcome back Ahar.

According to the Lounge Time.

1. Shower use is an additional cost. You need to pay to use the Lounge Time first. But you get free soft drink/juice & amenities and free use of other facilities.

However, it may become free, if you have the same day boarding pass for a flight from Fukuoka AND a gold credit card or better. Depending on the credit card, there may be a perk. Best to ask at the Lounge Time entrance counter. http://www.fuk-ab.co.jp/service/t_credit.html

2. Lounge Time is available to anybody. You can take a free shuttle bus from international terminal(No. 1 stop) to domestic terminal 2 (~15min. ride).

Good luck!

Thanks.

I'll be taking KLM's new service which starts in April and arrives fairly early in the morning so I'll want to freshen up for the day. It was so nice to get a shower last time at Narita after a long flight so I'm glad I can do the same at Fukuoka. Looks like I'll need to save my pennies for the lounge fee though! At least I'll be saving on transport to/from the airport with it being so close to the city.

Thanks for the heads up about the new KLM service. How did I not know about this? Great news for Kyushu and other west Japan residents who don't want to go through KIX or NRT for minimal connections to Europe.
