Getting to Hakuba from Tokyo

Public transport or public transport....

If   you   have   made   your   own   way   to Tokyo   from   the   airport,   then   getting   to   Hakuba   should   hold   no   fear.   It comes    down    to    either    an    express    bus    or    public    trains,    the    quickest    method    (bullet    train    &    bus combination)   taking   just   3   hrs,   but   a   direct   express   bus   will   be   the   cheapest.   Depending   on   how   much other   travel   you   will   be   doing   in   Japan   you   may   want   to   consider   getting   a   Japan   Rail   pass   (need   to   get it before you arrive in Japan and you can get a discounted one here ).

There   is   only   1   direct   bus   to   Hakuba   a   day,   and   that   leaves   at   07.30   am   from   Shinjuku   station   in Tokyo.   If   you can   get   that   great,   if   not   then   you   will   need   to   change   trains   a   number   of   times,   and   it   will   take   you   much longer   than   either   the   express   bus   or   bullet   train   options.   Make   sure   you   get   a   Japan   Rail   pass    before   you come.
