Getting to the festival
Public transport is the most convenient way to reach the festival site. We operate two bus services; one taking you directly to the festival from Tokyo, and a regular shuttle bus, for those of you who wish to travel via bullet train to the local station, Echigo Yuzawa.
SHUTTLE BUS SERVICE
(ECHIGO YUZAWA STATION – FESTIVAL SITE, FESTIVAL SITE – ECHIGO YUZAWA STATION)
For those of you who wish to travel from Tokyo (or other cities) by shinkansen (bullet train), the festival operates a regular shuttle bus for ticket holders from Echigo Yuzawa station, the station nearest the festival site. You will be able to board the bus by showing your confirmation letter.
Please check the festival’s official English language website, www.fujirock-eng.com , for full details including timetables, which will be announced and published in due course.
DIRECT BUS SERVICE

A direct bus taking you from major Tokyo connection hub Shinjuku, all the way to the festival site and back, taking all the stress out of planning your journey to Naeba. Sit back and enjoy the ride!
