Hello, I need to get from Tokyo to Takayama, on friday, 14th of April. What is the earliest and fast way i can get there, and what is the latest time i can leave in order to get back to Tokyo? I heard the bus at 5.5 hours is the best way - but the website is in japanese, so i cant tell what's the earliest time the bus departs tokyo, and the latest time a bus departs Takayama back to tokyo! I hope you can help, CHeers, alex
Hi. I checked www.highwaybus.com. Bus schedule is as follows. From Shinjuku to Takayama (1)8:00 (2)9:00 (3)14:30 (4)16:00 From Takayama to Shinjuku (1)6:30 (2)8:00 (3)11:00 *via Nakatsugawa (4)13:30 (5)15:30 But the web site says 1st & 2nd from Shinjuku are already fully booked. There is another option, but it would exceed your budget... From Shinjuku you can take a JR Chuo line express train "Azusa". At Matsumoto station (in Nagano Prefecture) you get on a express bus. alpico.co.jp/access/express/... Good luck.
