Highway bus company “Harvest” offers 2 services from Tokyo to Nagano Prefecture and beginning October 1st, 2010, will start two more routes, including a new run from Shinjuku to Togura Kamiyamada Onsen.  The round-trip prices are as low as 3,800 yen. 


If you’ve been wanting to take a relaxing trip to an onsen but the cost of getting there has been too much, now is your chance!  The poor economy and worsening exchange rates has put a crunch on peoples’ travel budgets.  With a round trip price of only 3,800 yen, making a trip to Nagano has become a lot more affordable.  Take advantage of this opportunity to leave Tokyo’s hustle and bustle (not to mention concrete) and come out to Japan’s countryside for a rejuvinating stay at an onsen ryokan.
