hakuba to kyoto to tokyo

Hakuba to Kyoto to Tokyo

Hi All

Travelling to Hakuba for skiing.

I've got transfers to Hakuba already but have not got transport for the Hakuba to Kyoto to Tokyo legs.

Will JR work well for this?

Also how easy will it be changing trains from Hakuba to Kyoto.

Thanking everyone in advance


Transfer between Hakuba and Kyoto is very easy. Check for details train times etc. Be aware that trains run ON TIME !! and that travel between platforms can be quiet a distance, just something to keep in mind especially with lugage, we nearly got caught a few times.


Yes, JR will work and you can use the Pass if you have one. It is quite long though and will take 5¾ hours. This link can help you:
