Machida (町田) is in Tokyo prefecture.
Machida, a major stop on the Odakyu Line, is served by nearly all trains out of Shinjuku. The fastest way is by Rapid Express (快速急行) and Express (急行). These trains depart frequently, every 10 minutes or less, and reach Machida in 30-35 minutes (¥360). Slower Semi-Express (準急) trains take 45 minutes to an hour. Machida is also the first stop on all Limited Express services that run to Hakone. They take about the same time as a Rapid Express, but incur an additional ¥400 surcharge. You do get your own comfortable seat,however, so reserving a seat on this train, especially for the rush hour, can prove to be beneficial for the added charge.
JR Yokohama Line trains make runs to Machida from Hachioji (20-30 minutes, ¥290) and Yokohama (30-40 minutes, ¥380). More frequent trains from Yokohama depart from nearby Higashi-Kanagawa (東神奈川) station.
The Yokohama Line offers the best connection from the Tokaido Shinkansen to Machida via Shin-Yokohama station (15-20 minutes, ¥290).
There is no charge for JR trains with the Japan Rail Pass.
Kanachu and Keio bus companies jointly offer daily services to Machida from Narita and Haneda airports. (There is only one service, depending on the time of the day, you may get Kanachu or Keio service.)
