Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Accommodations / Direct bus service Arrangements

  • Accommodations:
    Although we request that participants make arrangements for their stay in Kyushu for the World Aquatics Masters Championships on their own, a World Championships affiliated travel agent is also selling accommodations plans specifically for Masters participants.
  • Direct bus service
    The direct bus service which runs from transport hubs to the venue will be sold on this website(pre-booking required).
    Please note that the direct bus service is not available (sold) for some venues.
    Currently, information such as pickup and drop-off points and fees is listed on the website.
    Due to the expected limited timetable, etc., as it cannot be operated in shuttle form, the sales period of this direct bus service is scheduled for Wednesday 12 - Sunday 16 July, after entry registration has closed and the start list has been released.
    The direct bus service is an ideal way to travel to and from the competition venue and a great alternative to public transport, as you don't have to worry about things like travel times. The staff can also guide you on the bus, so you can board with peace of mind.
