Aoshima is accessible by bus and train from Miyazaki. Buses depart from Miyazaki Eki-mae Bus Centre (hourly; 50min; ¥670), with a stop at Depāto-mae, and drop you beside the west entrance to the botanical garden. Alternatively, you can take the JR Nichinan Line train from Miyazaki Station (hourly; 30min; ¥360). The island lies 800m east from Aoshima Station; the map outside the station will point the way. There are plenty of cheap minshuku around Aoshima Station, which can be hunted down using the same map.
