Transportation to Akiu Onsen

Asked by Shiroi Tenshi · 1 month ago

I'd like to ask how to get to Akiu Onsen from Sendai by bus. What number of bus, and maybe the link to its timetable. Is it possible to return from Akiu Onsen in the evening?

Hi Shiroi, 

To get to Akiu Onsen, you can either go by car or take one of two route buses. By car, it takes 30 minutes to reach the heart of Akiu Onsen, Akiu-Sato Center, from JR Sendai Station.

By bus, there are two route buses from JR Sendai Station to Akiu Onsen, the Akiu line by Miyagi Transportation, and the Seibu Liner by Takeya Kotsu. The Akiu line by Miyagi Transportation departs from bus pool 8 at the west exit of JR Sendai Station and takes 50 minutes to reach Akiu Onsen. The Seibu Liner by Takeya Kotsu departs from berth 63 along Aoba-dōri, in front of JR Sendai Station, and takes 40 minutes.

If you get lost finding the bus berths, you can ask for help at the Sendai Tourism Information Center on the second floor of the View Plaza in Sendai Station. They can direct you to the bus berths. As English is available as well, do feel free to use it with peace of mind.
