Public Transport

You could get public transportation to get to Tokachidake Onsen but then you won’t have flexibility to get to trail heads and onsen.

You could catch a train to Kami Furano Station – see Japan Travel Navitime for timetables and fare. From the station there are 3 buses each day to Tokachidake Onsen. The trip takes about 45 minutes (see – use google translate).
