~ First time in history! Picture book “Wolves of the Blue Night” & Mr. ZUN Route Bus Collaboration Project ~

Keio Group Nishi Tokyo Bus Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Hachioji City, Tokyo; President: Takeo Hamada) and Tambayama Village, Yamanashi Prefecture (Village Mayor: Takeshi Okabe) are keeping the tradition of wolves alive on Nishi Tokyo Bus route buses. We will carry out a collaboration project that makes use of the climate of Tamba Yamamura. In recent years, Tanba Yamamura has adopted a wolf as a village symbol, triggered by the reconstruction of Nanatsuishi Shrine (the nearest bus stop, Kamozawa), which has enshrined wolves as “the messenger of the mountain god” since ancient times. This time, in the route bus “Okutama Station-Taba, Kamozawa Nishi” running in Tanba Yamamura, which is also the westernmost part of the West Tokyo bus route, between “Kosodegawa-Kamozawa Nishi-Tamba” running in Tanba Yamamura. , We will adopt a special stop name guidance display by Mr. Mai Tamagawa, who was in charge of drawing the picture book “Wolves of the Blue Night” (written by Miku Terasaki) with the motif of the reconstruction of Nanatsuishi Shrine.
In addition, Mr. ZUN, the creator of the doujin PC game “Touhou Series”, who is extremely popular, has composed an original song based on the picture book, “Nanatsuishi no wolf, runs to take the clouds” at the request of Tamba Yamamura. It will be used for in-car BGM in some sections between the station and Tamba. This is the first time in history that we will be collaborating with a fixed-route bus on the works of Mai Tamagawa and ZUN.
In addition, between “Kosodegawa-Kamozawa-nishi-Tanba”, information on the history and climate of each stop will be introduced, and the destination direction sign will also be operated with special specifications.
This line was suspended due to a falling rock that occurred on June 15, 2022, but on October 14, it resumed operation for the first time in four months. Please take a route bus to visit Tanbayama Village, a “unexplored region” that can be reached by train and bus from the Tokyo area. I hope so.

  1. Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any tips?
