Directions by car from Tokyo

From the greater Tokyo area or main artery roads leading from other regions of Japan:

Take either the Shuto Expressway or Shoreline Expressway southwards to the Keiyo Road.  Along the Keiyo Road there will be a toll-ticket (issuing) booth in Sodegaura. Continue on the Keiyo Road, change at the Miyanogi Junction to the Tateyama Expressway, in the direction of Kisarazu / Tateyama .  Exit the Tateyama Expressway at the Ichihara exit.  The toll will be collected here (JP Yen 1,200.)

After the toll-booth, the Katsuura/Ootaki branch will enter directly onto the Number 297 road in the correct direction. Within 5 min.. in the middle of a broad field a sign will indicate a turn to the 297 - Ootaki / Katsuura at the light.  Turn left.  At the next T-intersection (Miwamitsumata intersection) turn right (which continues along the Route 297, southbound.)  Continue on this road (45 min.) until you arrive to Katsuura City.  Upon entering central Katsuura, you'll descend a long hill with a view of the ocean (or at night, large, brightly lit resort hotels.)  KOC is located mid-way down this hill on the right hand side.  The two parking lots are situated before the Clinic, so be careful not to pass them by.
