Kyoto to Nagano

How often does the train run from Kyoto to Nagano? What's the best route from Kyoto to Nagano?


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!
