Kushiro Bus Terminal to Lake Akan Bus Center? 2019/7/26 12:04
Hello all!

I'm looking for information on how to get from Kushiro Station Bus Terminal to Lake Akan Bus Center and then back to Kushiro (in the same day), but I'm having trouble finding a lot of information. I found this: http://www.akanbus.co.jp/foreign/en/daytrip/dt01 which would be perfect, but it's from 2016/2017, so I don't know if the bus is still available or if the information is up to date. Does anyone know for sure, or has anyone taken this bus recently? Or are there any other possible options? Any help would be really appreciated.

Thank you!

Above is a link to more current info but in Japanese - you might use your browser's translation tool to figure it out.....

Thank you for your reply, Maranyc! Unfortunately, that page seems to be for a day tour and I'm just looking for a bus that goes to the Lake Akan area without stopping to see other sights along the way.

I looked around the rest of the website and couldn't find any other info with my limited Japanese. Is booking a day tour the only option for getting to this area via public transportation?

This is the Eng webpage which @maranyc provided. Not sure of yr purpose in going to Lake Akan with no interest in sightseeing.
In addition, in most situations people use the translator to help themselves quite successfully & they dig hard in the internet.

This is the regular bus schedule.
I think with my limited Japanese that the top left is the bus schedule that you need....
‹ϊ˜H‰w‘O@Kushiro Station - top row leaving 10:15
ˆ’Š¦ŒΞ Lake Akan - fifth and sixth rows - two stops at Lake Akan.

Hope that helps - as you can see bus transport is not that frequent.
I took the tour that goes from Kushiro to the lakes and back a few years ago.

Guest - If you actually read my original post, I mentioned that the information on the English website is out of date so I donft want to rely on information from years ago that may or may not be accurate. I tried my best to find information myself, but I guess I am an idiot. Either way, no need to be rude about it.

Maranyc - Thank you, this looks to be very helpful! I appreciate your assistance.
