Drive-by shooting (Annapet IM technique) Road - Taxi & Bus Review

Here is our designated driver. He has a microphone and I was waiting for him to start singing without notice. Nope. He took us safely to our destination without uttering anything beyond: thanks for using our line and we hope you had a pleasant trip. You are welcome and the trip was not that bad.

These are cherry trees. When they are in full bloom they are one of the most beautiful scenes in Tokyo. Seeing them when you cruise along the river is a must do activity.

Yakatabune are always available, but Tokyoites really cheerish the trip during New Year celebrations, cherry blossom viewing, hanabi (fireworks) in summer, and bonenkai (year-end parties).

Sometimes you feel like you could move faster if you take the roads below the highway. They always look greeener and clearer than the highway that was built to ease the traffic in the capital.

the way you are not taking - Tokyo
the way you are not taking

The signal indicates the way to Hakozaki. You are bound for Tsukuba, remember, but you may be asking yourself what is this Hakozaki.
Hakozaki is located at the crossing point of the Metropolitan Expressway #9 and #6. The so called "gate to abroad" or Tokyo City Air Terminal in Hakozaki functions as a key transportation point. The origin of the name Hakozaki was taken after the name of Hakozaki Shrine. This area used to be an island surrounded by the Sumida, Nihombashi, and Hakozaki Rivers until 1970.

From Tokyo to Tsu-Havana, Tsukuba Road - Taxi & Bus Review

Till the Joban Shinsen (The New Joban Line) gets ready,
no better choice togo to Tsukuba than the JR Highway Bus: A 60 minutes ride for 1250 yen.

a view - Tokyo
a view Road - Taxi & Bus Review

If you come early, consult an urology specialist. If you can sit at the front seats you will have more leg space and a nice view of Tokyo' streets, and then of Tokyo's highway. Remember that the trip will last for a while, most of the delays will be caused by traffic in the highway that takes you across Tokyo.

The bus - Tokyo
The bus Road - Taxi & Bus Review

This is the bus that is taking you to Tsukuba. A bus leaves every 15 min from Yaesu-Minami of Tokyo JR station to Tsukuba Bus Center. It takes 65 to 90 min. depending on the traffic. No reservation required.
"Tsukuba bus center" is what it is written on the small window to your right.

Do not get scared by the signs in Japanese, do not get scared by the Japanese signs. There are two routes for the buses connecting Tokyo and Tsukuba. One lines goes to the Tsukuba bus center; the other one does not. You are going to the Tsukuba Bus Center.
