Kyushu SUGOCA prepaid card & JR Pass

Recommended Posts

Konnichiwa !
My travel companion & I will be visiting Kyushu Fri 6 - leaving on 12 Sept 2019.  

Our itinerary :
6 Sept - Arrive at Hakata 
7 to 8 Sept - Nagasaki
9 Sept - Return to Hakata 
10 Sept - Day trip to Saga from Hakata
11 Sept - Day trip to Kumamoto from Hakata
12 Sept - Depart Hakata in morning 

My current understanding on how I should go about with the IC Prepaid cards + JR Kyushu Pass :
1. Upon Arrival at Fukuoka International Airport,we can get 2 cards -  1. Hayakaken Card - which enables to take our subway to Hakata Station & I can continue to use it for subways in other cities & prefectures within Kyushu. 

2. Separately I should also buy a 3 Days Northern Kyushu JR Pass which covers :
-  JR Kamome Limited Express from Hakata to Nagasaki
-  Limited Express Train from Hakata station to Saga City
-  Shinkansen to from Hakata to Kumamoto
While I understand SUGOCA Prepaid Card covers JR Pass, I'm still not sure if  buying it is enough or I need to combine with a  3 Days Northern Kyushu Rail Pass. 

Look forward to your advise . Thank you

Ms SY Lim
