Getting to Karuizawa for less — just 2000yen.

Having recognized that alomost all the posts on this blog are realated to sightseeing within Nagano, I dare to post this info on tranportation from Tokyo as I thought this is quite useful & helpful for anyone planning on visiting Karuizawa and its nearby town. Most visitors to this site wants to know not only the places to visit but also how to get there and how much it costs! Believe or not, you can come to Karuizawa from Shinjuku, Tokyo by bus for just 2000yen!  It’s an amazing price and less than half of the cost of Shinkansen from Tokyo. But the down side is that it takes about 2 hours 30 min, which is about twice as long as Shinkansen. The bus arrives at a parking area win Karuizawa Price Shopping Plaza New East.

For details visit the bus reservation page at Rakuten Travel

(Find the bus route ” KR421 ” in the list. Using Japanese web sites for booking public transportation and hotels is always headache. And unfortunately this is not an exception. Price may vary by season and day of the week.)

About Shuichiro (Inactive)

My name is Shu Ono and I became self-employed 4 years ago and started my own tourism business called Jissen Inbound. I just wanted to introduce myself and my travel journal which I will try my best to keep updated with all my trips in Nagano (both business and pleasure. Just a little about myself: I'm originally from Osaka, Japan, the second largest city in Japan. But after graduation from an university in Tokyo, I spent about 4 years in other coutnries - Australia, USA and England. Please don't ask me which food I like - fish & chips or hamburger. :) I like Japanese foods very much. Recently I'm really interested in Japanese calligraphy andI play golf which I hope to do so this coming summer in Nagano. Also I love traveling Japan. I'm happy with what I'm doing in business because my clients are usually ryokans and hotels in coutryside including Nagano. I hope to use my experiences to make contributions to the Nagano tourism blog site. TKsyusyu
