The tour group I'm with this coming August 2011 has a free day in Fukuoka and while some are going to the Kumamoto area, a few have inquired about going to Sasebo to see the Saikai Bridges at the Hario Channel. We all have JR Passes, so those people will be taking the train to Sasebo. However, I'm having a hard time finding a local weekday bus schedule to the Saikaibashi area (and back).
This "Welcome to Sasebo" website says to take the Saihi bus to area:
