Hi Jennifer,

Thanks for your question.

There currently aren’t any buses that travel between Chino Station and the Suwa Taisha shrines. It is about a 35-minute walk to Maemiya and 45-minute walk to Honmiya from the station, or a 7-minute or 11-minute taxi ride respectively. A taxi from the station to the shrines would cost about 1,600 yen one-way.

There is also a bus that connects nearby Kamisuwa Station and the Honmiya shrine. Here’s the timetable below (see the full timetable in Japanese here):

Kamisuwa Station 10:30, 12:30, 16:00
Honmiya Shrine 10:57, 12:57, 16:27
Kamisuwa Station 11:45, 13:45, 17:15

I hope that helps answer your question.
