Odakyu Group Starts Selling 4 Package Tours Allowing Foreign Travelers to Enjoy Charms along Odakyu Railway Lines

November 3, 2018 Rail No Comments Email Email

The Odakyu Group comprising Odakyu Electric Railway Co., Ltd., UDS Ltd. and ELLISTA Inc. began in October 2018 to sell four types of day tours allowing travelers from abroad to enjoy tourist attractions in areas along the Odakyu lines, which link Tokyo’s Shinjuku with popular tourist spots such as the Hakone area and the Enoshima-Kamakura area in Kanagawa Prefecture.

On these tours, participants can visit 1) Yoyogi Uehara near Shinjuku and Shibuya in downtown Tokyo; 2) Shimokitazawa well known for young people’s subculture; 3) nature-rich, sacred mountain Oyama also known as a historic site; and 4) Odawara, which is the gateway to Hakone and where there is a station on the Tokaido Shinkansen bullet train line. All the four tours are day trips requiring advance reservations. On all these tours, guides provide detailed information in English on local tourist attractions in these four respective areas.

Reservations for these tours can be made online as well as at INBOUND LEAGUE and Odakyu Sightseeing Service Center Shinjuku West for foreign tourists, both situated in Tokyo’s Shinjuku Ward.

The Odakyu Group is determined to continue organizing tours for foreign travelers to allow them to enjoy tourist attractions along the Odakyu lines.
