Hi there,

The best way to travel from Kyoto to Nagono is to take the Shinkansen to Nagoya and transfer there to the limited express (Shinano) to Nagano, otherwise if you have a JR-Pass you can also travel to Tokyo and transfer there.

Here is an example of what the route looks like.
The route with a transfer in Nagoya is at least possible every 2 hours.

Hope this helps!
