Hanamaki is a city in Iwate prefecture famous for hot springs.

Get in[edit]

By train[edit]

Hanamaki is accessible by local trains as well as by the Tohoku Shinkansen line.

The Tohoku Shinkansen stops at Shin-Hanamaki station; however, it is not a major stop so it is usually only accessible by the slower Yamabiko (やまびこ) train which terminates at Morioka.

The local JR East train also makes a stop at Hanamaki Station.

By bus[edit]

From Tokyo, there is a night bus operated by Iwateken Kotsu[2] from Ikebukuro that stops in Hanamaki. A one way trip ranges from ¥7,300 to ¥9,000 depending on the season. Reservations are required and can be made in person or online, though the website is only in Japanese.

From Sendai, there is a highway bus called the Kenji Liner[3] that operates three times a day. The trip takes roughly two and a half hours, with one-way tickets costing ¥2,600 and round trips for ¥4,700.

Hanamaki Airport (IATA: HNA) is a small airport located slightly to the north of the city, and services Nagoya, Osaka, Fukuoka, Sapporo, and Taipei.
