Inawashiro Station to Urabandai Area

There is a bus system that runs in Inawashiro / Urabandai area, connecting sightseeing spots with Inawashiro Station.

However, the idea of taking public transport to get to sightseeing spots can be daunting. Especially since there aren’t any English-language bus timetables!

For this reason, I have translate the 2018 bus timetable, complete with the main bus stops you’ll need to reach some main sightseeing spots and hotels.
