Hokkaido small town transport Akeshi 2018/12/28 12:03
Hello members,
Please advise transport for small town in Hokkaido
for example Kushiro n Akkeshi
How to get around in the city? So lack of info in website
Maybe Kushiro has Bus, but Akkeshi or Monbetsu is very little info

1. From Akkeshi station to Nenohi park, by walking is 49minutes, any bus available?

2. And how to get around in Yubetsu to Monbetsu ? Rail n bus only until Engaru/Yubetsu
We cannot rent car since our country license is not recognise in Japan,
not according to Geneva convention

Regards

BusmapInfo is a good guide to search buses. Do zoom in until bus stops appear on the map.
https://busmap.info/map/?q=%E5%8C%97%E6%B5%B7%E9%81%93

Local governments have their own pages. Akkeshi lists Kushiro Bus, Sakura Hirer Taxi, JR trains, and rental bicycles (May-Oct by Kushiro Bus).

You could also try out NAVITIME. The app is for pay (and I never downloaded the full version) but I think there is also a desktop version available. Itfs an app very common in Japan for transport and has a lot of bus information. Just give it a try to see if it covers busses in the places youfll travel to.

Enjoy your trip to Hokkaido!

Flower hunting is difficult. There are yearly variations.

Matsumae is a museum of cherry blossoms. The season extends up to a month from early to late-blooming Sakura. This official site indicates the period could be from 16 April to 24 May.
