Koriyama [1] is a city in Fukushima prefecture.

Get in[edit]

Koriyama is the largest city in Fukushima Prefecture and has good rail, road and bus networks linking it to Tokyo in the south and other parts of Tohoku to the north and west.

The Tohoku Shinkansen is the fastest way to get to and from Tokyo (80 minutes, ¥7970), as well as other major cities in Tohoku, such as Fukushima and Sendai (40 minutes, ¥5240).

The Tohoku Main Line follows a similar route to the Shinkansen, and though cheaper, it is much slower and trains run far less regularly.

The West Ban'etsu Line connects Koriyama with Niigata in the west, travelling via the Mount Bandai region.

There are also buses linking Koriyama with Tokyo and Narita Airport.

Koriyama is situated on the Tohoku Expressway, with interchanges at Koriyama and Koriyama Minami.

The nearest airport, Fukushima Airport, is in Sukagawa city, about 20km to the south. Fukushima Airport has daily flights to Okinawa, Osaka and Sapporo, with less frequent international flights to Seoul and Shanghai.
