Rail is probably the most convenient way to travel, although there are inter-city buses. Since the railway stations are usually conveniently located within the centre of town, it is preferable to take a train, than to even fly. That said, a trip from Tokyo to Hakata takes a good part of a day, even on the Nozomi. A little more detailed information can be found here

Before traveling to Japan every tourist wishing indpendent travel in Japan would be  well advised  to purchase a Japan Rail Pass. This needs to be purchased outside Japan and validated by visiting a related travel centre when you are ready to travel in Japan. However it is not available for those on work and other non-tourist visas so if in any doubt this should be made clear before purchase, as this ticket will not be valid for these travellers.
