It takes approximately 4 hours from Chubu International Airport by train and/or bus.

For people who want to enjoy the journey and beautiful views must take express trains and/or express bus from both Tokyo and Nagoya. Bus is cheapest transportation to take to Hakuba. One of the easiest ways, a direct taxi from Narita and Chubu airports will take you just in front of Gallery & Lodge NOICHIGO. Please inquire us for the recommended directions from major international airports in Japan. Takkyubin - express delivery service- is one of the most convenient and safe methods to deliver your huge and heavy luggage including skies and snowboards to us. Many of the express delivery companies such as Kuroneko Yamato, and Sagawa Express operate out from the Airports, so it is easy to apply for delivery, and usually deliver the luggage by the following day. The cost depends on destination, weight, and number of luggage you will send. Sending your luggage out from our lodge to the Airport is also available.
