I plan to hiking Hakuba Daisekkei – Mt.Hakuba – Tsugaike Natural Park on July 15-17.

Could you please suggest me.

Where can I store my large luggage for 3 days at Hakuba Mura? 

My last trip in Hakuba, I saw only small coin locker at Hakuba Station.

How do I booking Mountain Hut? (Hakuba Sanso and Hakuba Oike)

and Are there Sakura line bus run on July?


Thank you,

Hi there,

Thanks for contacting us with your question about visiting Nagano this summer. I’ve answered your questions below.

Luggage storage
You can store your luggage at the Kita Alps Hakuba Ekimae Eigyosho next to Hakuba Station. It costs 300 yen per day.

Booking mountain huts
You can book these mountain huts by phone (or email in the case of Hakuba Oike Sanso). If you don’t speak Japanese, I would recommend calling Nagano’s multilingual call center, which can connect you to the lodge and interpret for you.

  • Hakuba Sancho Sanso (booking available from Apr. 1, 2019)
    phone: +81(0)261-75-3788
    booking hours: 9:00 to 17:00, closed on Tuesdays
  • Hakuba Oike Sanso (booking available from Mar. 1, 2019)
    email: ekimae1@hakuba-sanso.co.jp

Sarukura bus
Based on last year’s schedule, the Sarukura line bus will likely begin running on July 6th, 2019, and continue through to the 24th of August.

I hope that helps answer your question. Let me know if I can assist with anything else.

Hi Blair,

Thank you very much for great suggest. I will call Nagano call center for help me before I go to Japan.

I found day one that I plan to hiking July 15 is public holiday in Japan. 

Will mountain hut close on July 15?

Thank you,

Good morning!

Most mountain lodges are open throughout hiking season and are particularly busy during weekends and holidays. Hakuba Sancho Sanso and Hakuba Oike Sanso will both be open on July 15th.

Ok, thank you very much Blair.
