Moekko Free Ticket 14th Season

Engan Bus Co. Ltd. is the sole operator of the bus industry of Rumoi Subprefecture. Regardless, the company is extremely generous to its clients. They have fare discount schemes where if you buy 1000 yen in pre-paid tickets, you get 200 yen in tickets. The catch is that you can only get it at the Engan Bus Sales Office near JR Rumoi Station.

I pinned it on the map below:

However, the focus of this article is on the Moekko Free Ticket (萌えっ子フリーきっぷ). If you've traveled around Japan, you're probably familiar with the unlimited train, subway, and bus tickets. That is essentially what the Moekko Free Ticket is. There are three kinds of Moekko Free Tickets to choose from:

1-day Pass A - 2700 yen

1-day Pass B - 2700 yen

2-day Ticket A - 3900 yen

2-day Ticket B - 3900 yen

2-day Skip Ticket - 3900 yen

The Moekko Free Ticket is perfect if you would visit faraway towns like Embetsu until Toyotomi. Here's the route map of the Engan Bus for your school visits:

As of this writing, Engan Bus Co. Ltd. released a special promo for the Moeko Free Ticket called Moekko Free Ticket Nogurutto Hokkaido Discount. It ran from April 1, 2022, to September 30, 2022 April 30, 2023. The discounted prices of the tickets are:

1-day Pass A/B - 2700 yen 1900 yen
2-day Ticket A/B - 3900 yen 2800 yen
Skip 2-day Ticket - 3900 yen 2800 yen

However, before heading to the Engan Bus sales office, you should check their website for updates regarding the Moekko Free Ticket. Here's their WEBSITE

To the next Rumoi High School ALT:

Moekko Free Ticket I bought this month

Before buying your tickets, wait for your visit school schedule and look for your Embetsu and Teshio visit. If they are next to each other in a week, then buy the 2-day Ticket A/B. If they are placed apart in the week then the Skip 2-day Ticket is. However, if you'd only go to one of them in the week, buy the 1-day Pass A/B. Heads up! Ask permission from either your main JTE or the Kyoto Sensei before heading out to buy the tickets during work hours. 

Moekko Free Tickets I recently used

I usually hoard 1-day and 2-day tickets after I receive my salary as it saves me from the hassle of asking permission weekly. So with that, good luck my dear successor. I hope you find this article useful in your life in Rumoi City as an ALT.
