hakone to hakuba

hakone to hakuba

Would like to know the best and easiest way to go from Hakone to Hakuba, using the JR Pass as much as possible. I know that some part of this trip will not be covered by the JR Pass. The date will be 16th December 2016 and we would like to get to Hakuba as early as possible.
Thank you for your advice.

Here is an example route fully covered by the JR Pass.

You can set the date/time at the bottom of the page to the bottom of your page.

Hope this helps,
