Getting There & Away

Sakata is an easy day trip from Tsuruoka on the local fūtsū train (¥500, 35 minutes), or a pleasant stop en route to Akita (limited express ¥1940, two hours) on the scenic, coast-hugging Uetsu main line.

Several daily buses go to Yamagata (¥2730, 2¾ hours) via Tsuruoka (¥820, 50 minutes).
