Hello, I\\\’ll be coming from Matsumoto to Nozawa Onsen in January 2019. What\\\’s the easiest way to get there? I hear there\\\’s a bus from Nagano but on the time table for the Shigakogen Line it doesn\\\’t look like the bus stops at Nozawa Onsen? Also if there is a bus, how do I book the bus tickets?

Hi Su Ann,

There is no bus to Nozawa Onsen from Nagano City. The easiest way to reach Nozawa Onsen from Nagano is to take the local Iiyama line train (45 min, 530 yen) or Hokuriku Shinkansen train (11 min, 1,360 yen) to Iiyama Station. From there, take the Nozawa Onsen Liner (25 min., 600 yen) to Nozawa.

I hope that helps!

thanks Blair. Can I book the Nizawa Onsen Liner in advance? If so, how?

Hi Su Ann,

It is not possible to reserve a seat on the Nozawa Onsen Liner in advance.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
