Traveling from Overseas

It is an international airport offering connections to major East and Southeast Asian cities such as Tokyo, Seoul, Beijing, Taipei, Hong Kong, and Singapore.

Public transportation in Japan is characterized by plenty of options. Therefore it is too complicated to understand. If you have friends who live in Japan or know about it enough, we recommend you to ask them about your trip to Japan before the departure. For example, when you want a journey not only between the airport and Toyohashi Station but also any other major cities in Japan via Shinkansen/train for sightseeing, using Japan Rail Pass is effective for saving JPY.
