Hamada to Shinjuku by train?

Norman Norman, Lived in Japan

I think the bus is the best way to get Hamada from Shinjuku. If it's Shinkansen, you will need to change the train in Hiroshima, but the bus you can get Shimane directly. There was Express Bus, but it has been canceled since 2015.

Norman Norman, Lived in Japan

How about hiring a guide in Sapporo? You can enjoy the Sapporo Central Wholesale Market with your own guide. The private guides are relatively affordable in Japan. So you can contact them before your trip and make a plan. The Crab Market is just unforgettable!
