Visitors to Soyokaze can access it in various ways. Driving through Soyokaze is common, but parking is a chore. There is a large parking area a few miles down the road, but it isn't paved and you need to take a shuttle up from it. So, many people either take the train from Shizuka or spend a little more time and hop on the bus. It's a great way to see the area if you're not in a rush.
