Shimonoseki's main train station is centrally located on the San'yo Main Line. A new station building will be under construction, as the old building was destroyed in an arson fire in January of 2006.
The bullet train station is Shin-Shimonoseki, located seven minutes away by train from the town center. Only the slower, all-stopping Kodama trains make stops in this area, as do three daily Hikari trains in each direction (toward Hakata in the morning, and from Hakata in the evening).
The best calculated option for central access is to actually take a Nozomi or Hikari train under the sea and into Kokura station on Kyushu, then backtrack to Shimonoseki's main station on the San'yo Main Line via Moji. By this route, Shimonoseki can be reached by Nozomi in about 5 1/2 hours from Tokyo (¥24600) and 2 1/2 hours from Osaka (¥16850).
Remember that you cannot use Nozomi trains with the Japan Rail Pass.
An overnight bus service, the Dream Fukufuku, runs from Tokyo and Yokohama to Shimonoseki. From Tokyo, the ride takes 15 1/2 hours and costs ¥13000 each way.
Another Fukufuku service departs nightly from Osaka Umeda station, running to Shimonoseki in about 10 hours at a cost of ¥9150 each way.
Daily ferries run by Kampu Ferry (tel. +81-832-243000, 1 (http://www.kampuferry.co.jp/)) connect Shimonoseki to Busan in South Korea. At time of writing, ferries leave from both sides at 7 PM and arrive 8:30 AM the next morning. 2nd class one-way tickets cost ¥8500, making this the cheapest way to get from Japan to another country.
