    Hamamatsu is located in the center of Japan, roughly midway between Tokyo and Osaka. The Tomei Expressway and Tokaido Shinkansen (bullet train), two central arteries, also pass through the city giving it excellent transportation links. Access to Hamamatsu from overseas is possible from Narita International Airport (Tokyo), Central Japan International Airport (Nagoya) and Kansai International Airport (Osaka). In March 2009, Mt. Fuji Shizuoka Airport will open, making it even more convenient to come to Hamamatsu.
