...but nicer! As others have mentioned, it's 21 minutes on the Odakyu Line from Shinjuku in Tokyo. The local, section semi-express, semi-express and the express all stop the the station: Mukugaoka Yuen. The rapid express and the Tama Express don't, so be careful! Admission is just 500 yen, and well worth it! Very picturesque in any season, rain or shine. There are always a couple demonstrations going on, traditional holiday decorations, and sometimes even a small kabuki performance in the theater there. Plenty of good toilets and drink machines discreetly placed here and there, and even a restaurant!
