Myoko Shuttle Bus | Nagano Shuttle

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 Myoko 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.

If you are more interested in a private taxi or minibus for your group, or something more tailored to your arrival/departure times, then check out the options here.

We can assist in booking a daily shuttle bus to get you from Narita Airport/Haneda Airport to Myoko Kogen, and from Myoko Kogen to Tokyo, Narita and Haneda. We also offer an inter-resort shuttle, to and from a number of other nearby ski resorts in Nagano.

Note: Some shuttle times only run on certain dates outside of peak season. Please see each departure below for dates.

Times and fares for the 2022/23 season will be updated asap.
