From Kansai area (Osaka, Kyoto, Kobe)
The most recommended way is to take a bus from the Kansai area to the JR Tokushima station. There are several bus companies operating the route in between Tokushima and Kansai area.
We recommend to reserve the ticket by phone or internet in advance of your departure date; however, the tickets can be also purchased at the gate counter of the each bus stops.
After arriving at JR Tokushima station, take a local or an express train to JR Yamakawa station. See the train schedule.

From Kansai Internationa Airport
Take a limousine bus from the airpot to JR Tokushima station. The bus is leaving to Tokushima approximately one in a hour from the bus stop in front of the airport. Purchase the ticket at the bus service counter at the airport.

From Tokyo
You can take either domestic flight from the Haneda airport or take a train. If you prefer to take a train, we recommend to take a Shinkansen bullet train from Tokyo to Kobe (*the bullet train is not operated within Shikoku island), then take a bus from Kobe to Tokushima, which will take nearly a whole day to travel and we recommend to take a domestic flight if you would like to save some time.
