If your flight time matches up with Aplico’s once a day direct bus, this is possibly the best way to get to Hakuba from Narita airport and back. Extra roomy seats with, not only plenty of leg room, but also a leg rest so you can snooze for the entire 6 hour journey. If you will be joining us at Lodge tabi-tabi be sure to get off at Hakuba Goryu bus stop, we are a 10 minute walk from there. Check our access page for a map of the area. We can be a little tricky to find because we tucked away at the end of a road but keep your head up and eyes open for signs along the way.
Please check the Alpico website for timetables and fares. You can book online at Japan Bus Online or Japanican. I have no idea why they don’t have a direct booking option. It’s always best to book direct! Of course, we recommend booking your accommodation direct too! For other travel options check out our transportation pages on our blog and read the rest of my articles for all kinds of other useful information and local insights.
