Akihabara Station departure timetable 
(Approximately 2 hours 30 minutes)

One-way fare 2,000 yen

2 tickets number of times tickets two 
In two 3,500 yen
※2 tickets (the number of times tickets of two spelling) is profitable! In two 3,500 yen from Mashiko , 2,600 yen from Kasama ! Even with the round trip alone, even with one by one in two people OK! Rather than buy one by one way, it is profitable much.

Up Mashiko-Kasama departure ─ Akihabara Train Station

Down Akihabara Station departure ─ Kasama Mashiko flights
