Arriving

By train

Shin-Yamaguchi is a bullet train station stop for only a few Nozomi trains, most Hikari trains, and all of the Kodama all-station trains. By a combination of bullet train and local train, Yamaguchi is about 60-70 minutes from Hakata in Fukuoka (¥6230 via Nozomi/Mizuho), about 2 1/2 hours from Osaka (¥13150 via Nozomi/Mizuho) and about 5 hours from Tokyo (¥21560 via Nozomi). Japan Rail Pass holders must travel on the Sakura and Hikari services, which take slightly longer; a train change will be required if originating east of Osaka.
