By train

Tomakomai is the junction point for the JR Muroran, Hidaka and Chitose lines. The trip from Sapporo, via Chitose airport, takes about 45-60 min depending on train type.

By boat

Tomakomai is best known as a major port, with shipping services to points throughout Honshu. There are two separate terminals:

Tomakomai-ko Ferry Terminal (苫小牧港フェリーターミナル)

  • Kawasaki Kinkai Kisen (川崎近海汽船) "Silver Ferry" to Hachinohe, 4x/day
  • Shosen Mitsui Ferry (商船三井フェリー) "Sunflower" to Oarai, 2x/day

Tomakomai-ko East Ferry Terminal (苫小牧東港周文フェリーターミナル)

  • Shin-Nihonkai Ferry (新日本海フェリー) to Tsuruga (daily) and Akita, Niigata (3x/week)

Both terminals are served by local buses from JR Tomakomai station (~20 min to either) and by long-distance buses direct from Sapporo (around 1:30).
