Hakata Station (博多駅, "Hakata-eki") is the main railway terminal of the city of Fukuoka, Japan. It is the largest and busiest station on Kyūshū, and is a gateway to other cities in Kyūshū for travellers from Honshū. The Sanyō Shinkansen from Osaka ends at this station. It is located in Hakata-ku. The station is currently being rebuilt with the main building having been torn down and a new, larger station building as well as office buildings and new platforms under construction. The Hakata station reconstruction project is scheduled to be completed by 2011.
