Direction to Nippon Budokan

Updated on : May 19, 2013



Since I know quite many of you are going to Reina graduation concert
at Nippon Budokan, Tokyo, I am going ahead and write a post on

direction to the Nippon Budokan

so you can get excited and be prepared :p.

Here is the map from the nearest station.

The orange octagon is the Nippon Budokan on the map below.




The station name that you are getting off at is Kudan-shita station of either

Tokyo Metro “Tozai” line, “Hanzomon” line or subway “Shinjuku” line.

5 minutes walk from the station.

The exit 2 is the nearest exit,
however if it is crowded, you can get out or get in from exit No. 1 and 3 also.

To reach exit No.1 and 3 go up the pedestrian bridge to cross the road.


Have fun!!!!


How to get to the Hibiya Yagai Ongakudo

Updated on : May 18, 2013


Hi! How are you doing?

I know some of you are going to the concerts held at Hibiya Yagai Ongakudo
(Hibiya Open-Air Concert Hall) tomorrow so thought to make a map to get there.

Since I am not familiar with that area, I used the map I found on the internet as reference.
Should be OK.

Seems there are 6 stations you can get off at depending on what line you are using.

The orange area at the upper left in the map is where you want to go for the concert tomorrow.



1) If you are taking Tokyo Metro “Marunouchi” line,

get off at “Kasumigaseki” station.

3 minutes walk from exit B2.

2) If you are taking Tokyo Metro “Hibiya” or “Chiyoda” line,

get off at “Hibiya” station.

5 minutes walk from exit A14

For “Hibiya” and “Chiyoda” line, you can choose the following 3) and 4) also.

3) If you are taking Tokyo Metro “Hibiya” line,

get off at “Kasumigaseki” station.

4 minutes walk from exit A5

4) If you are taking Tokyo Metro “Chiyoda” line,

get off at “Kasumigaseki” station.

3 minutes walk from exit C4

5) If you are taking Subway “Mita” line,

get off at “Uchi-Saiwai-Cho” station.

3 minutes walk from exit A7

6) If you are taking JR, take either “Yamanote” or “Keihin-Tohoku” line and

get off either at “Shinbashi” or “Yuraku-cho” station.

15 minutes walk from “Hibiya Guchi” exit.

For the transaction from your hotel to the station of the concert hall,

this site (Hyperdia) will probably be useful!! Check it out!


Looks tomorrow will be fine weather but on the concert hall homepage,
it says to bring umbrella or rain coat. It will be outside hall so.

OK! I hope you all aave a great time at the concert!!!

Since there are many Hello! Project related bus tours start at Kajibashi Parking area in Tokyo, I made a map from Tokyo station for getting to the Kajibashi Parking where people are meeting up for the bus tours (for people departing from Tokyo).

When you get to the JR Tokyo station, find the Yaesu South Exit.

This map above explains how to get the
Kajibashi parking from the Yaesu South Exit of Tokyo Station.

Here are the photos for the 4 landmarks on the map that you may see on the way.


1) Yanmer building



2) Logo of Yaesu Book Center



3) Logo of Joyo Bank



4) Yaesu Fujiya Hotel, seems blue board with white characters.The angle you see this hotel may different.


OK, that’s about it!
Hope it will help!
