Hi! I’m heading to Kyushu area in Oct/Nov and really excited to check out the Karatsu Kunchi event on Fri Nov 2. Does anyone know if trains will run later during this festival? I guess I’ve left it a little late because I can’t seem to find any hotels in Karatsu. The closest hotels are around an hour away by train so now I’m thinking that I might stay in Hakata or Saga area where there are more hotel options.
From the information I found online, it looks like the parade runs from 7:30-10pm but the last train from Karatsu station is 10pm. I’m hoping that this might be extended for the duration of the festival…?
Any information you could provide is greatly appreciated!
