Myoko Shuttle Bus | Nagano Shuttle

Myoko Snow Shuttle Nagano

Myoko & Nagano Ski Resort Shuttle

The Myoko Shuttle Bus is one of the most convenient ways to get to Myoko Kogen, Akakura Onsen and Arai 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 Myoko, 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. Unfortunately shared taxi rides (ex Haneda or Narita airports) are no longer available to Myoko. We’re hopeful they will return in the future but not likely for the 22/23 season.
