Kanto Transportation operates highway buses, airport buses, and local buses mainly in the Utsunomiya area. Based in Utsunomiya - Japan's gyoza city - we operate convenient bus services travelling to Nikko, famous for World Heritage shrines and temples, the naturally beautiful Nasu Onsen hot spring resort, and Japan's popular tourist cities of Osaka, Kyoto, and Nagoya.
Utsunomiya is well-known for its dumplings, or gyoza in Japanese, and the streets are lined with many purveyors of these tasty gyoza. For this reason, many people visit the city simply to eat gyoza. The Oya History Museum and the site of a former underground stone quarry is also only about 30 minutes away by bus and a popular place to snap some photos to show off on one's social media account. Utsunomiya is certainly a convenient place from which to base your travels.
Nikko's shrines and temples, the most famous of which is Nikko Toshogu Shrine, are registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Nikko is probably one of the best tourist sites where visitors can really appreciate Japan's symbolic architecture.
Nasu Onsen is a hot spring resort immersed in nature but close enough to Tokyo for a one-day round-trip. There are fun things to see and do, like the Nasu Highland Park and Nasu Animal Kingdom, while the Nasu Ropeway can whisk you up to the top of Mount Nasu. In summer the area is flushed with brilliant greenery and in autumn the foliage is breathtakingly beautiful.

Often referred to as Japan's kitchen, the streets around Dotonbori are lined with plenty of cheap and delicious restaurants. And there are must-see sights dotted all over the city, including Kuromon Market, Osaka Castle, Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, Universal Studios Japan, and Tsutenkaku Tower.
