Hakuba Shuttle Bus | Tokyo Shuttle

Shuttle services to Hakuba

Hakuba Shuttle Bus | Resort Shuttle

The Hakuba Shuttle Bus is one of the most convenient ways to get to the Hakuba Valley from Narita Airport and Haneda Airport in Tokyo. Many flights arrive late and normally you would spend the night in Tokyo. But if you get the ski shuttle bus to take you to Hakuba, then you can be on the slopes in the morning! You can also book intra-resort shuttles to or from the nearby main Nagano ski resorts as well as to/from Nagano Station to meet the shinkansen.

If you have a larger group and are more interested in a private taxi or minibus for your group, then check out the options here or fill in the form below. Unfortunately shared taxi rides (ex Haneda or Narita airports) are no longer available to Hakuba. We’re hopeful they will return in the future but not likely for the 22/23 season.
