Get in

By train

Fukuyama, an intermediate stop on the San'yo Shinkansen line, is approximately 25 minutes from Hiroshima via the Hikari (¥4800), one hour from Osaka (¥7850) and 90 minutes from Fukuoka (¥11000). One-seat rides on the Nozomi depart once per hour from Kyoto (80 minutes, ¥8700), Nagoya (2 hours, ¥12200) and Tokyo (3 3/4 hours, ¥17200).

You cannot use the Nozomi with the Japan Rail Pass; if coming from Tokyo, Nagoya or Kyoto you will have to change trains en-route. However, there are two early-morning Hikari trains from Nagoya and Kyoto that offer a one-seat ride to Fukuyama.

By bus

From Tokyo, Odakyu Bus and Chugoku Bus operate the nightly Etoile Seto to Fukuyama from Shinjuku Station (9 1/4 hours, ¥10500 each way).

Keihan Kyoto Kotsu runs three round-trips from Kyoto station (4 hours, ¥4100), and Kintetsu Bus runs seven round-trips from Osaka's Umeda and Namba stations (3 1/2 hours from Umeda, ¥3770).

From Hiroshima, Rose Liner buses operated by Ikasa Tetsudo and Tomo Tetsudo operate 2-3 times per hour out of the Hiroshima Bus Center (1 hour 40 minutes, ¥2300).



At GETAKOBO, you can choose your own size, shape, and color of wooden sole as well as pick from hundreds of different styles of straps. Both men's and women's are available. Very friendly and helpful staff will assemble your shoes as you watch in just a few minutes. Many styles are available for around 3000 yen per pair.
