Tohoku Highway Bus Ticket

This new ticket allows unlimited rides on designated highway buses throughout the six prefectures of Tohoku, the northeastern region of Japan.

This is an economical way to explore all that the region has to offer, from breathtaking natural scenery such as the “snow monsters” of Zao Onsen in Yamagata and Hirosaki castle draped in cherry blossoms in Aomori, to unique culinary delights such as wanko-soba in Iwate and kirakira-don in Miyagi.

There are two types available (both types are for consecutive days’ use):

4-day Ticket 10,000 yen
7-day Ticket 13,000 yen
