I take it you mean the Akasaka at Tokyo?

From Akasaka take any train that leads you to Tokyo Station.
To do this you would have to take the metro Chiyoda line and then transfer to the metro Marunochi line.

At Tokyo station, take the Shinkansen to Omiya Station.

Which place in Akasaka will you start from?
There are some subway stations in and around Akasaka.

Six gardens of Omiya Bonsai Village seem to be located roughly between the Omiya Bonsai Art Museum and Omiya-koen Station of Tobu.
- The Omiya Bonsai Art Museum, Saitama: Access / Hours / Closed
- The Omiya Bonsai Art Museum, Saitama: Map for Omiya Bonsai Village (in Japanese)

An IC transportation card (such as Suica, PASMO) can be used on each of the two routes below.
(If the travelers include a kid (roughly 6 to 12) to whom child-rate railroad fees apply, his/her personal data need to be registered when he/she gets issued a Child Suica / PASMO Card.)
Please check "Basic Use" of the following article if this is the first time for you to use an IC transportation card in Japan.
