Points to Enjoy RIJF Part 2 ~ Using the weekends ~
RIJF will be held on Saturdays and Sundays for 2 weeks. In other words, it will be held for 4 days in total. While staying in Japan, why don’t you enjoy domestic sightseeing on weekdays, and plan to go to Hitachinaka on the weekend? As it takes about 80 minutes from the Tokyo metropolitan area to the nearest station of the venue, it is relatively easy to go there. However, the number of trains is limited and trains will be crowded. So, you should travel in good time. Also, buses directly going to the venue from various cities are available. If you are not used to domestic travel, the buses are recommended.
