By Train

If you have a Japan Rail Pass and you’d like to make use of train lines as much as possible, you can access Tokushima City via Okayama station. Take a train from Okayama station to Takamatsu station (via the Seto Ohashi bridge – 65 min) then transfer to a train bound for Tokushima (60 min). If you are coming via Shinkansen from Nagoya or Tokyo, it is faster to get off at Shin-kobe station and take a bus to Tokushima station from there than it is to take the train around.
