Tokyo to Hakuba

Hi JR.
Travelling from Tokyo to Hakuba on 26th December this year .
Wanting to use train system and JR. tickets .
Is this possible ? And if so how long is the trip and how often are the trains ?
Thank you


Hi there,

Yes it is possible to take the train from Tokyo to Hakuba.

The route looks like this.

There is also one direct train each morning from Shinjuku, Tokyo. See this as example. It leaves at 7:30 and I recommend this route if you don't mind waking up early.

Hope this helps,
