Shinkansen + Local Bus
Taking the famous Shinkansen or the “Bullet Train” is the fastest way to get to Shiga Kogen, with the overall journey from the airport taking just over 4 hours. The trip involves a few connections, so if you’re travelling with young children or have lots of luggage you may prefer a direct transfer.
If you’re traveling from Haneda or Narita Airport here’s how you get to Shiga Kogen.
- From Narita Airport take the Narita Express to Tokyo Station or if you’re coming from Haneda Airport you’ll need to take the monorail to Hamamatsucho Station and then the train to Tokyo Station.
- From Tokyo Station, take the Shinkansen to Nagano Station. The Bullet Train crosses the country in less than 90 minutes at speeds of up to 300km/h.
- From Nagano Station you’ll need to head out the East Exit to Bus Stop #23 or #24 and can catch the Nagaden Bus to Shiga Kogen where it will drop you off at your accommodation.
We provide all our customers with a connection timetable prior to travelling to make the trip easy. If you have any issues during your journey, just ask one of the friendly Japanese staff at any of the stations and they will be happy to assist.
