I’m so glad that I visited Aizu Wakamatsu recently! Originally, I just want to visit the Japanese castle – Aizu Wakamatsu Castle, but everyone suggested me to visit there in the cherry blossom season.
Aizu Wakamatsu is in Fukushima, which is a Prefecture of Japan located in Tohoku Region. There are many ways can go to there, but I choose the easier one, JR Highway Bus.
There is a bus departure from Shinjuku Bus Terminal to Aizu Wakamatsu, many buses running in a day. If possible, please reserve the seat as earlier as you can, then you probably can get a very good price of the ticket.
I did reserve the ticket late, the first time when I was on their website, it was 12:58. After I decided to make a reservation, it shows, please try again during the office hours(5:00AM-1:00AM). Yes, I have to book it after they open the system, and I did my booking on the other day after I woke up.
Traveling by bus is not so comfortable actually, but it’s really convenient. Bus stoped twice for a short break, can get off the bus for toilet or buy something.
I took lots of photos from the trip. People were so nice and friendly, food is good, and it’s a quiet place. I had a great time there.
By the way, Japanese Sake is very famous there, please try it if you have the chance. I also brought 2 bottles back to Tokyo, it was heavy but it’s ok! 😀
