From TSUKUBA DIRECTION
There is a long east-west running road that divides Tsukuba in half. This road is known locally as “Tsuchiura Gakuen-sen” or Route 123. Take this road west for several kilometers, past Tsukuba Center (where Tsukuba Station is), LaLa Garden (on the left), Starbucks (on the right), and Yamashin Gran Stage (on the right). Continue on this road for 5km past Yamashin Gran Stage. (You will pass Shuei High School on your right and keep going for several kilometers.) The road will become smaller, going from 6 lanes, to 4 lanes, and finally 2 lanes. You will see a European (Tudor-style) house on your left just after the road narrows to two lanes. There is a traffic light just after the European house. At the next traffic light after the one in front of the European house, turn left. (There are only fields around this traffic light.) There is a sign at this intersection telling you to “turn here” for Tsukuba International School. Travel down this road for about 200 meters and you will see the school (a huge wooden building) on the left.
