Get in


Minami-Sakurai Station (南桜井駅), in the heart of town, is served by the Tobu Noda line (for Tokyo, connect to JR at Ōmiya) and the Tobu Isesaki line (connect to JR at Shin-Koshigaya).


From the Tohoku Expressway's Iwatsuki Interchange, take Highway 16 towards Noda for about 17 km (30 minutes). From the Jouban Expressway's Kashiwa Interchange, take Highway 16 towards Noda for about 20 km (40 minutes).

Get around

The city's Haru Bus serves three routes, on Monday through Saturday, for a few hundred yen per ride. Given that, you might find a taxi (about 1000 yen across town) to be faster and more convenient, though more expensive.
