How to get there?

How to get to Izu is simple – there is a direct bullet train from Tokyo Station that gets to Atami Onsen in about 40 minutes.

Getting around the Peninsula, especially to the Southern and Western Coasts, can be a little bit challenging.

But- there are several convenient ways to access the Izu peninsula depending on your budget and itinerary.  

The fastest and most direct way to get to Izu Peninsula from Tokyo is by JR Shinkansen – Atami and Mishima Stations are accessible in under 1 hour from Tokyo Station and the JR Rail Pass can be used on the Kodama Train.

JR also runs limited express and local trains travel down the East Coast of Izu as far as Shimoda and also access Numazu & Kannami Stations.

Izukyu Railway is a local train company that built the railway lines between Ito City and Shimoda in 1961 – It now shares this track with JR and also provides train service from Tokyo 

Izu Hakone Railway operates trains from Hakon through Mishima to Shuzenji Station and also operates a network of buses around Izunokuni and Izu City.

Along the West Coast and in Minami Izu there is no train access – Tokai Bus operates buses through the region.

Rental cars are available from Shimoda, Mishima, or Numazu and Camping Cars are becoming more popular in Japan and are a great option for getting around.
