Hot Springs in Japan


Hot Springs in Japan

We have a very cold winter in Japan, so how about visiting Atami-city? Atami is famous for its hot springs. In Japanese we call hot springs "onsen."

only about 30 or 40 mitutes from the capital Tokyo

When you take a super express Shinkansen "Kodama", it takes only 37 minutes from Shinagawa to Atami-city. If you take a super express Shinkansen "Hikari", it takes only 32 minutes.

Kodama stops at the Odawara station, one station before Atami, but Hikari passes through it.

Time Schedule:
Shinkansen Hikari #467
Tokyo 10:03 → Shinagawa 10:10 → Atami 10:42
Shinkansen Hikari #479
Tokyo 16:03 → Shinagawa 16:10 → Atami 16:42
Shinkansen Hikari #483
Tokyo 18:03 → Shinagawa 16:10 → Atami 18:42
