Narita Airport to Hakuba
Narita Airport to Hakuba – Traveling into Narita International Airport will offer you a variety of options to travel not only to Hakuba and Myoko but also throughout Japan.
Tip – If you are spending anytime in Tokyo before coming to Hakuba, send some of your luggage direct to Morino Lodge using the takkyubin (japan wide luggage delivery service) service you`ll see as you exit customs.
Tip – If your plan is to do some travelling in Japan beyond Hakuba, you should consider the JR (Japan Rail) Pass – note: this must be purchased before arriving in the country. It`s great value if you `re going to take more than 3 long distance trains during your stay.
- Direct Airport Shuttle– This service is by far the easiest & most popular We can arrange for a direct shuttle up to your Chalet or Morino Lodge’s front door. They can accommodate for large and small groups or even single travellers. The driver will be holding a placard with your name on it at arrivals ready to assist– it doesn’t get much easier than this! Rates directly to your lodge or chalet are 15,900yen/adult, 11,100yen/children under 16 & 6,100yen for kids under 6.
- Nagano Snow Shuttle– This is a pre booked bus service which operates from outside Terminal 2 directly up to Hakuba Happo Bus Station & Myoko Kogen Akakura Bus Stop. It is super convenient and runs four times daily between 17th DEC 2016 and 12th MARCH 2017. It is important to note that due to its popularity it does fill up very quickly. Look here for Nagano Snow Shuttle fare & times.
- Train – NEX- Narita Express – This is the most popular train into Tokyo station (where you`ll transfer onto a bullet train to Nagano). A ticket for this service should be purchased at the Narita Airport Station before traveling on the train. This will cost you around 1400- 3000yen one way or 4000yen adult return directly into Tokyo Station and Shinjuku Station.
- Train – Keisei Sky Line– This is a newer & cheaper alternative to the Narita Express. It`s slightly cheaper than the NEX and although not as direct (more stops to drag your luggage around) the journey to Ueno Station is faster. Be warned however, the Skyliner will drop you at Keisei-Ueno Station. There is then a further 8min walk to the main Ueno Station where the bullet train will depart from. This walk makes this option less appealing for groups with lots of luggage or young children.
