Yamagata (山形) is the prefectural capital of Yamagata prefecture.

Get in

By train

The Yamagata Shinkansen zips from Tokyo to Yamagata in 2:45 at a cost of ¥10690, and continues onward to Shinjo. The dirty little secret, though, is that from Fukushima onward the Shinkansen travels on an ordinary track and thus at ordinary speeds.

By bus

JR Bus Tohoku runs an overnight bus service, the Sakuranbo, from Shinjuku Station in Tokyo. The trip takes about 5 3/4 hours and costs ¥6300.

Get around







Get out

  • Yamadera, the Mountain Temple, is nearby and the main tourist draw in these parts.
  • The holy mountains of Dewa Sanzan are within striking distance of Yamagata.
