We will have shuttle buses running from the Ashikaga train stations (JR line and Tobu line) to the fairgrounds. A one-way ticket to use the shuttle bus will cost ¥300 per person. From Tokyo, one can reach the Ashikaga-shi Tobu train station by taking the Tobu Line (express or local) from either Asakusa or Kita Senjyu.
