Map and Directions
here for an English map to the Young Buddhists
Hongo Sanchome from the Marunouchi or Oedo subway lines.
Both lines run through Shinjuku Station. The stop on
both lines is called Hongo-Sanchome.
Directions: From the
Marunouchi line station, turn right after passing
through the ticket barrier and follow the alley out to
the main street. The building where the meetings are
held is across the street. You can cross at the traffic
lights on the corner (see map). From the Oedo line
station, take exit no. 5 and turn to the left after
leaving the station. Follow the main street and then
turn left again at the corner with the traffic lights
(see map). The entrance to the Young Buddhists
Association is next to the Nicos travel agency (just
behind the bus stop).
