Travel from Hakuba to Shirakawago

After skiing in Hakuba in January we wish to travel to Shirakawgo. Could you please advise the quickest way to get there.

Hi there,

The easiest way would be to travel from Hakuba to Nagano station, use the Shinkansen from there to Toyama and from there a local train to Takayama.

Is there a train from Hakuba to Matsumoto? Does it leave regularly through the day

Bringing a suitcase or two should not be a problem :)

On the website JREast it mentions a bus between Hakuba to Nagano which takes only 60 mins. Do you know about this?

I am not familiar with this bus but I know there are different bus companies that offer transport to Hakuba.
