Quiet part of the forum ^_^
I'm looking at the two bus lines available on this page:
but still can't decide on which bus pass to get.
The Famous Spots loop bus is cheaper and has a higher frequency... but apparently has less stops! I tried comparing the two route maps (http://translate.google.com/translate?js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=1&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.new-wing.co.jp%2Fkoedo%2Fkyousanten.html&sl=ja&tl=en and http://www.koedo.or.jp/foreign/english/pdf/kawagoe_loopbus.pdf), but I can't figure out the map orientation and which parts of town I won't be able to get to. Anyone familiar with the two bus lines, or able to understand both Japanese and English, who can help enlighten me?
Alternatively, is the town small enough to walk about? Will one (short) day be sufficient to take in the sights and sounds?
I'm thinking of making it as a day trip from Tokyo, and intend to head back at the end of the day to seek out a capsule hotel or a love hotel for the night.
