Canadian Hill Bus (Scheduled Bus Service)
There is a scheduled bus service to Canadian Hill (just up from KUC) which gets you to KUC in time for SUnday School at 10.30am Pickup time is 10.03 at Hanshin Shinzaike, 10.05 at JR Rokkomichi, and 10.10am at Hankyu Rokko. For details of the pickup locations, see below. However, you need to have a ticket prior to boarding as tickets are NOT available on the bus.
TICKETS: You can get free tickets from the KUC Office (Kikuko). You will need to obtain tickets from KUC prior to using this service, so if you plan to use it in the future, pick up tickets next time you come to KUC.
FROM JR ROKKOMICHI
From the ticket-gate, take the mountain-side exit (the bus turnaround will be in front of you), immediately turn right and walk towards the corner (Tulleys Cafe is on the corner under the railway line). At the corner, go across the road at the lights, and meet outside "Tsutaya". You should see someone holding a KUC Sign. From there you will be directed into taxis (and given a free taxi voucher). If you have any problems, phone the church office 078 871 6844.
