Visiting the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine route this June. Will be staying at Midagahara hotel for a night before descending to Toyama. Is there any luggage forwarding service from Nagano station to Midagahara Hotel ? Will be great if there is one so that i can just continue my journey from Nagano straight to Ogizawa to start the route.
Or do I need to take a bus from Nagano station to Shinano Omachi, forward my luggage there and then take another bus from Shinano Omachi to ogizawa ?
Please see this page about baggage-forwarding on the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route website. It is possible to forward your baggage from Nagano Station; however, it can only be forwarded to Dentetsu Toyama Station, not the Midagahara Hotel.
You can choose to pick up your luggage on the following day as the station will keep your luggage overnight.
I hope that helps answer your quesion.
