How to get to Shinshu University, Matsumoto Campus?
I suppose you are at JR Matsumoto station.
(The ways to get to the station and a campus map are available at the official site.
Faculty of Science, Building A is No.7.)
To get to the campus, the convenient way is to take a bus.
The bus terminal closest to JR Matsumoto station is located
next to `Espa department store', which is no.3 in
At the bus terminal, take a bus:
These buses go around a circular line anticlockwisely and clockwisely, respectively.
"Shindai Yokota circular line (信大横田循環線, Shindai-Yokota Junkansen)"
(The terminal number is 1.
A bus departs on basically 00, 20, 40 minutes past each o'clock.
e.g. 9:00, 9:20, 9:40.
The complete timetable is available at here.), or
"Yokota Shindai circular line (横田信大循環線, Yokota-Shindai Junkansen)"
(The terminal number is 2.
A bus departs on basically 10, 30, 50 minutes past each o'clock.
The complete timetable is available at here.).
By the former, you get to the campus faster (15 minutes or so).
It costs 200 JPY, and this is to be paid into a machine next to the driver when you get off.
The machine accepts only 10 yen coins, 50 yen coins,
100 yen coins and 500 yen coins.
On a bus, you can exchange 1000 yen bill or less,
but not more than 1000 JPY.
If you have time, you can buy a ticket at the bus terminal
(from a vending machine)
prior to getting on a bus, and `pay' the ticket instead of 200 JPY on the bus.
The bus stops you get off are:
at which many students will get off too.
"Front Gate (信州大学前, Shunshu Daigaku Mae)", or
"West Gate (大学西門, Daigaku Nishimon)",
Of course, you can instead take a taxi.
It will cost about 1000-1500 JPY.
It is also possible to come to the campus by walk,
but it will take 40 minutes or so from JR Matsumoto station.
