So this trip (by car) is 2 hours 41mins no traffic. For the people who live in Japan, how long should I budget for this drive if I was to leave Nasushiobara at 8am on a weekday?
@Vermillion If you plug this into maps on your Android phone (Right NOW), you can see the traffic. It show traffic jams around the expressways surrounding Tokyo, including from Tokyo out towards Narita Airport. I'd take the drive from Nasushiobara via Kasama & Tsuchiura and allow 3 hours. It says 2 hr 48min on my phone right now.
