There are several routes from Tokyo area or Narita airport. In general, first go by a train to either Zushi (JR – Japan Rails) or Shin-Zushi (Keikyu Railways), and then take a bus or a taxi. For foreigners, we would recommend sharing a taxi from Zushi or Shin-Zushi because that’s just easier. The train route/schedule can be searched by using the train route finder below.
More information on?Shonan Village Home Page.
You may use the one of the following train schedule searches (Google Maps usually also works fine).

For destination, enter “Zushi” or “Shin-Zushi”. As Tokyo area is served by several companies, you will see several choices. Please pick one that seems most convenient.

From Zushi or Shin-Zushi to Shonan Village Center
You can take a bus (which leaves once in an hour or half an hour, and takes 30 min from Zushi to Shonan Village Center) or a taxi, which costs 2.500 ? 3.000 yen and takes about 20 min.
As a bus driver is not likely to speak English, we recommend sharing a taxi (or finding a company who speaks Japanese, to take a bus).?Here?are some Japanese messages to show to a taxi driver.
