Tsukuba City is located approx. 50 km from Tokyo, only 45 min. by Tsukuba
Express line (express railway) and 60 min. by car, which is an excellent
accessibility from the central area of Tokyo. The topography is rather
flat covered with rich nature, such as Mt. Tsukuba at the north which is
familiar to many people, and Lake Kasumigaura at the east which is the
second largest lake in Japan. The climate is relatively warm throughout
the year, which makes a very comfortable environment.
