"From Tokoname to Handa" Tokoname Transportation Tip by taigaa001

Tokoname Transportation: 5 reviews and 9 photos

Handa serves as the base for Southern Chita Peninsula sightseeing. The bus service is available from both Chubu International (Centrair) Airport and Tokoname station. The line runs one or two bus service an hour. It takes about 30 to 35 minutes to Handa. But the catch is the bus line links to Meitetsu line Chitahanda station and JR Handa station is about 500 meters apart from Meitetsu Chita Handa station. Practically using Meitetu line is a lot convenient when sightseeing in Chita Peninsula. From Handa you can choose a wide variety of options to enjoy the trips to south part of Chita Peninsula. Popular destinations include the island hopping cruise of Shinojima and Himakashima Islands or Spa resort of Utsumi.

Local people, however, take seemingly roundabout route to change trains at Otagawa and change trains for Kowa line. In that way you may have less waiting time and save money as well if you are going southmost areas of Chita Peninsula.
