getting here

With so many options, getting to Schanze Nozawa is a breeze and an adventure in itself! We try to make it easy for you to make your trip here to visit us and we have included many resources here you can use to plan your route.

If you are planning on using the train, please keep in mind that the train routes presented here are only suggestions and depending on your time of arrival, there usually is more than one way to get here. Some train lines like the JR Yamanote can get very full depending on the time of day and should be avoided.

Also when planning to get here by train, please ensure that your destination train station is Iiyama Station and not Nozawa Station, which is over 600km away from us.

If you book your room through this website, we will pick you up at Iiyama Station.

Note: To schedule your pick up, please email us your train schedule at least 2 days before arrival. Pick up is available daily from 3pm to 8pm.

Once you get to Iiyama Station, you can take the Nozawaonsen Liner, a bus service which takes you to Chuo Terminal in Nozawaonsen. The departure schedule for the buses are timed to coincide with the arrival of the trains and you will usually have about 5 to 20 minutes to disembark from the train and make your way to the bus. You can get the most updated Nozawaonsen Liner bus schedule here.

Once at Chuo Terminal, you can take the free shuttle bus and alight at the P-3 Parking stop and from there it is a 2 minute walk to us.
