Zao Fox Village and Yamadera 2016/9/25 00:58
So, i'm trying to define my itinerary, and i wanted to ask you some questions ! :)

I want to know if it's possible to make in the same day, Zao village and yamadera.

As for the travel I already search that i can be at the fox village at 9AM.
My real question actually should be, how much time should i leave for the village?

If I leave for yamadera at 13, I can be at yamadera around 15PM... which i think it's enough time to climb the stairs and grab a meal in the city before going back to sendai.

I'm not sure first if Zao village is something that's gonna take 3/4 hours... maybe 2 hours...

Thank you so much!!!

You have to take 12:50 dep Shinkansen(no need reserved seat) fr "Shiroishi-Zao" stn
(Next Shinkansen is 13:50 too late)
Or, take 13:11 dep Rapid "Sendai City Rabbit" (no reserved seat car) fr "Shiroishi" stn.

Zao Fox Village placed about 20 min far by car (taxi/no regular bus)
fr/to Tohoku Shinkansen station "Shiroishi-Zao".
But Tohoku main line(not high speed track) "Shiroishi" stn is different location
but a bit closer fr/to Fox Village.
Both are not large station paltform numbers not so many very simple.

Sendai station map:

Exactly by Shinkansen fastest and comfortable also lunch break possible
but depends on special discount PASS(as Shinkansen train valid) using or not.

Time at the fox village - between 30 and 60 minutes. It is pretty small and depending on how you like caged animals you might find it cute or unpleasant.
