Kyushu Shinkansen

The Kyushu Shinkansen (九州新幹線, Kyūshū Shinkansen?) is a Japanese high-speed railway line between the Japanese cities of Fukuoka and Kagoshima in Kyushu, running parallel to the existing Kagoshima Main Line and operated by the Kyushu Railway Company (JR Kyushu). The southern 127 km opened on 13 March 2004. The northern 130 km section opened on 12 March 2011, although opening ceremonies were canceled due to the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. The construction of a spur from Takeo-Onsen to Isahaya, approximately 45.7 km in length, began in 2008. A further 21 km from Isahaya to Nagasaki is under construction and will open by fiscal 2022.
