Railway Overview

The Yamagata Shinkansen is often called a mini-shinkansen, like the Akita line. It began in 1992 and serves the area from Fukushima to Shinjo, with most of its stations lying in Yamagata prefecture. Between Tokyo and Fukushima it runs on the Tohoku Shinkansen tracks. At Fukushima station, many train enthusiasts enjoy watching the cars separate or join together as they venture on to the rest of their destinations.

Places to see

The Yamagata Shinkansen passes through 5 prefectures: Tokyo, Saitama, Tochigi, Fukushima, and Yamagata. As a result, there are many things to do and see. Tokyo station is near many shopping centers with many things you can buy, eat, and drink. Ueno is home to the Ueno zoo and its famous pandas. Omiya is near Saitama Super Arena and the Railway museum. Utsunomiya is famous for its gyoza, as well as the historical Utsunomiya Castle Ruins Park. Fukushima is well-known for its fruit, particularly Hanamiyama park. Going into the Ou line, around Yonezawa you can eat Yonezawa beef, and near Kaminoyama osen station you can visit the eponymous hot springs, which have been in business for over 500 years. Around Yamagata station you can visit the Yamagata castle ruins, or enjoy the local cherries. There are several hot springs within Yamagata prefecture as well. The Yamagata line is a great way to get out and enjoy nature.

Lifestyle

The Yamagata line is used mostly by people traveling to their home prefectures, vacationers, or businesspeople. You won't find many regular business or student commuters, as people living in the region locally will use other modes of transportation. The bulk of commuters will be those living along the Tohoku line, between Tokyo and Utsunomiya in Tochigi, traveling within Tokyo or around Omiya day to day. Rent prices will of course be high in the capital city and Omiya, but you can find affordable options along the line as well. However, areas outside of this will not have as convenient transportation, so a car is recommended for further areas.
