Maizuru ( 舞鶴 ) [1] surrounds an inlet of the Sea of Japan, along the northeastern coast of Kyoto Prefecture. Maizuru in Japanese means 'dancing crane'.

One of the main port cities in Kyoto Prefecture. Ferries to Niigata and on to Tomakomai in Hokkaido leave from here. Maizuru consists of two parts: Nishi-Maizuru and Higashi-Maizuru. Maizuru is a key district headquarters for the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force.

Higashi-Maizuru Station (東舞鶴) is served by eight limited express trains daily from Kyoto Station, six under the name Maizuru and two as Tango Discovery. Fares for the 96-minute journey range from ¥3,250 for an unreserved seat to ¥3,960 for a reserved seat in peak season. It is also possible to use local trains when traveling from Kyoto station for ¥1,890. The journey takes around 2 hours and you need to change trains at Sonobe and Ayabe.

A trip by car takes around 1 hour 10-20 min from Kobe-Sando. The ride from Itami airport takes approximately 1 hour 30 minutes. It takes 1 hour 30 minutes to get to Maizuru from Kyoto city.

The bus company Kyoto Kotsu has buses running from Kyoto central train station to Higashi-Maizuru train station for ¥2,300. The journey takes around 2 hours. The same bus company has buses going to Maizuru from Kobe and Osaka.
