Since Tohoku earthquake (March 11, 2011), We have been receiving lots of support from people all over the world.
So, we would like to say thank you for a lot of help, and we must do something in return for their kindness.

And now, we will introduce you "Non-touristy tour" and "See real Tokyo" by fixed route bus.

You can start this short trip from Shinjuku or Nakano(5-minute from Shinjuku by Chuo Line), and you can come back to Shinjuku easily and its costs cheap and takes less than half a day. We would appreciate if this site helped your sightseeing to be more exicited.

¡"Non-touristy Cherry Blossoms Tour" by fixed route bus

In early April, Cherry blossoms are usually blooming and this helps Japanese people to be healed from what happened in March 2011.

If you have a chance to come to Tokyo in early April, please see a nice scenery of cherry blossoms because there are a lot of famous spots in Tokyo.

But, these spots where most of the tourists visit are little bit touristy, so we will secretly introduce you spots where they aren't.

Shown below are secret spots where most of foreign tourists don't know but Japanese local people love to visit.

Please check each picture and details, and visit by fixed route bus !!

¡Seeing "Real Tokyo" by Kanto Bus

Tell the truth, Tokyo buses aren't tourists-friendly. Less in English, routes are very complecated, and not cheaper than subways.

But we strongly recommended to use only 1 route from Shinjuku Station to see "Real Tokyo".

Fixed route buses usually run between train stations, so if you want to try random adventure, just get on a bus that leaves from one of the train stations and get off at the final stop. Then take the train wherever you need to come back.

If you want to visit "Non-touristy" place, Nogata Area, called "Real Tokyo" is the best spot to visit.
There are some Japanese style shopping streets around Nogata, and a lot of unique shops like "SLIPPERS SHOP", "FISH-MONGER" and so on.

Let's start your short trip from Shinjuku Station or Nakano Station. You should have 210yen(One-way) and choose h05(Juku05) or ’†01(Naka01) for Nogata Station.

Fixed route bus for Nogata Station departs at Bus Stop No.15 in Shinjuku Station West Entrance.
