Costco’s new hours
Costco is open until 8PM on weekends and on holidays starting today. I went to their website just to be sure, and yes, they are open from 10:00 to 20:00 everyday now! I don’t know if the new business hours will bring more people or even out the crowd, but hopefully this will bring order to chaos on weekends.
Fastest way to get there is by train. Take TX train from Tsukuba, and switch to JR Musashino Line at Minami Nagareyama Station. Makuhari Station is only about 30minutes from MinamiNagareyama. It takes about 1 hour and 15minutes, and costs 1250yen each way. The buses are leaving from Makuhari Station to Costco and other stores every 10-20minutes, and costs 100yen per ride.
