All our hosts are easily accessible by train, which is the most reliable and safe form of transportation in Japan.
In general we suggest avoiding buses or taxis which can get stuck in traffic.
When figuring out directions, we recommend route planner sites such as HyperDia, Jorudan, or Google Maps. Be sure to check if you need to take the express or local trains to avoid missing your train stop.
You will be meeting the host at their nearest station indicated in your confirmation email and not their home to avoid getting lost.
Using IC cards are highly recommended to save time from purchasing tickets everytime and money too since for every trip you will be paying a few yen less than for individual tickets.
If you need further assistance such as trying to figure out the best route using JR if you have a JR pass, don't hesitate to contact your host directly or the Nagomi Visit Team.
