Shizutetsu Just-line BUS
Shizutetsu bus runs all over Shizuoka city. There are two terminals, one is at “JR Shizuoka station” and the other one is at “Shin-Shizuoka station (Cenoba)”. If you take bus, you can travel all over our city. I put information about the bus you should take to get to the places introduced in this site!
- Shizutesu TRAIN
This train is run by the same company that runs the bus above. The train goes between Shin-Shizuoka and Shin-Shimizu back and forth, so you don’t have to worry about complicated train changing like Tokyo or Osaka. Very simple! It has only 15 stops between Shizuoka and Shimizu.
With JR trains you can transfer from the east to the west of Shizuoka city. We have 9 stations in the city. And the major ones are “JR Shizuoka station”, “JR Higashi Shizuoka station”, and “JR Shimizu station”. There’s only “Tokaido line” which actually go to farther to the east(Tokyo) and the west(Nagoya). How to ride the train is pretty much the same as Shizutetsu train above.
