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