On weekends and holidays Ogikubo is the next stop after Nakano. All RAPID trains stop at Ogikubo (you will see RAPID written on the sign above the platform).Do not take the SPECIAL RAPID train Follow the directions on the right.
3) Take the Tozai Line and get off at Ogikubo. Follow the directions on the right.

FROM OGIKUBO STATION to Unicorn Center :
12-minute walk from Ogikubo Station. Go out through the east ticket wicket(東口）. You will still be underground. Then go toward your right and up the escalator to sreet level. That is the south exit. Once you are outside, cross over to the shopping street with the little arch over the entrance. You will see a Segami drugstore on your right with Shakeys over it. Take that first left. Go past the Yoga Studio and Kaldi and walk straight, crossing at the lights at the 7-11. Keep walking for quite a while until you come to a T-junction (you will see a little park on your right and the public gym on the left just before the T-junction). Turn left and then take a right onto Omekaido (main street). Immediately you will see a bridge over the street and a traffic light with the sign Bundaisugiko. Unicorn Center is in the small 3-story building on your right just before that overpass. You will see a sign for USEnglish in the show window. Go to the left side of the building and ring the bell for 302.
Unicorn Center is on the 3rd floor of Villa Holonica (USEnglish is on the 1st floor)
