A Local Perspective on Life in Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan.

Retro-bus from Tsukuba Station

I visited the Tsuchiura Machikado Kura yesterday to see the exhibit I talked about in my previous post, and I really enjoyed looking at all those artworks and the scenery! If any of the TsukuBlog readers are into photography, then this part of Tsuchiura is the place to visit!

It stayed there for 15-20 minutes, so my son and I were able to get inside to take more pictures. Sure enough, my son told me he wants to take a ride in this bus from Tsukuba Station next time, so I guess I’ll have to visit Machikado Kura again soon!

It’s designated a cultural heritage in Ibaraki Prefecture.

There is a Tsuchiura Tourist Association office inside Machikado Kura Daitoku, so you can get information and advices right on the spot!

If anyone is planning to go to this place or elsewhere in Tsuchiura, be sure to plan ahead! Annual Kasumigaura Marathon (this is a really big event) is today, so traffic controls are being enforced now.
