Dewa Sanzan from Yamagata area? 2017/10/10 06:54
Hi there.
I was looking at the transport from Tokyo to Dewa Sanzan, where going through Niigata seems the only way.

But are there any buses or so from Yamagata area to Dewa Sanzan?

Yes, there is an express bus. I got the information on it in 2009 on this forum, but I can't find a link to it. There is an express bus that runs from Yamagata to Tsuroka. The bus station was a short walk from the train station because I did it on my own. I am unsure if it is faster than the shinkansen to Niigata and then catching a Limited Express, I think it would vary by timing.

Hopefully someone else can get you the actual bus schedules.

I just arrived to Yamagata a short time ago and thought to ask at the local tourism information center. They confirmed that a bus from Yamagata bus station to Tsuruoka station exists. They didn't have a timetable. However their information material says it takes 1:30.
From Tsuruoka station you will then need to take an other local bus to the entry of the mountain you want to climb.

Enjoy your trip to Japan!
