Access to the University
Hiroshima is a hub of the Chugoku Region and it is within easy reach of many parts of the country. Shinkansen trains (the bullet train) travel from all major Japanese cities to JR Hiroshima Station. If you travel by air, you can avail of either a Limousine Bus(Airport shuttle bus)from Hiroshima Airport, or a local bus and the JR Sanyo Line (local train) from Iwakuni Kintaikyo Airport. Once you get to Hiroshima City, local bus services are the most convenient way to visit our University: you can travel by bus from either JR Yokogawa Station (approx. 15 min.) or Hiroshima Bus Center (approx. 20 min.), and get off at Shiritsu Daigaku Mae (Hiroshima City University) or the next nearest bus stop, Numata Ryokinjo Mae (the Numata Highway Tollgate).
