Airport Shuttle Bus to Zao
If you’d prefer to fly in, you can choose from either Yamagata airport or Sendai airport. From Sendai, guests can catch a bus that takes around 2 hours and runs three times a day. The bus requires reservation and costs around 1,800 yen for adults and 1,300 yen for children. Alternatively, you can fly into Yamagata airport and share a taxi, which takes around an hour. Reservation is again required, though, and it is slightly more expensive, costing 2,500 yen for adults and 750 yen for children.
