Hato Bus Co., Ltd., Tokyo, announced new bus tours on April 1, each of which is accompanied by an English- or Chinese-speaking guide, for the spring 2016 season from April to June. The Hato Bus tours, 54 tours in all, include spring-only tours to enjoy sakura blossoms, watch Japanese dances, and stay overnight.

(1) New bus tours to experience Japanese culture.

The company has been operating experience-focused bus tours for foreigners since 1954. In addition to the currently offered tea-making and craftwork experiences, the newly announced tours include a visit to Japanese-style dances for Chinese travelers, night horse races at Kawasaki Keiba racecourse for Chinese tourists, and playing games with geisha entertainment girls at traditional restaurant Mukojima Sakura-jaya for English and Chinese speakers.

This year’s tours feature a new tour of Ashikaga Flower Park, the first of its kind for the company, for English and Chinese speakers.
