How to get there from Tokyo?


I booked a flight to Tokyo in May and I wanna check out Beppu right away. What would be the value-for-money way to get there? Flight?

Cheers and thanks!

Tokyo to Beppu is quite a long trip...if you have a JR pass, you could take a Shinkansen to Kokura, then a limited express to Beppu. You are looking at over 7.5 hours of travel by train. If you bought a regular ticket (non JR pass) you could use a slighly faster train but you are still talking 6.5 hours plus at a cost of over Y23,000 one way...so a pass is cheaper for a return trip

You could also fly from Haneda to Oita, the nearest airport to Beppu.

Just curious, why do you want to check out Beppu right away? Is it for hot springs? There are many hot spring resorts near Tokyo. Beppu is, to me, one of the biggest tourist traps of all time :((

Jetstar Japan, a low-cost carrier, operates flights from Narita to Oita [the airport that services Beppu]. Think you'll find them cheaper than JAL or All Nippon.
