Haneda Airport to Hakuba
Haneda Airport to Hakuba – Haneda Airport is situated slightly closer to both Tokyo City, Hakuba and Myoko. Because of this your travel times will be shortened slightly. Like Narita Airport it is well set up and offers a variety of travel options plus takkyubin (luggage delivery services) and vendors selling pre-paid sim cards.
TIP – When booking flights to Tokyo, choose Haneda over Narita if the price justifies it.
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. Tit`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 option for those weary travelers who do not wish to think about more traveling, luggage and kids. 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 travelers. The driver will be holding a placard with your name on it at arrivals ready to assist you – it doesn’t get much easier than this!
