Kiso Fukushima is on the Chuo Main Line from Nagoya to Shiojiri via Ena and Nakatsugawa. Eventually the Chuo Line continues on to Tokyo via Kofu and Mitaka.
Shinano Express trains stop here and thus Kiso Fukushima is a good place to change for hikers using local trains heading north to Yabuhara and Narai on the Nakasendo highway.
Get off at Yabuhara to walk over the Toge Pass to Narai on the historic Nakasendo Highway.
The Kiso Fukushima Tourist Information Center is directly opposite the station. Local Ontake buses and taxis pull up directly outside. There are a couple of shops selling local souvenirs plus snacks and drinks next to the Tourist Office.
