I am planning to go to nagano in the end of Jan.
I would like to spend one day for the onsen monkey garden and 善光寺. And another day is for ski in the 白馬村 area.
Is there any good deal transportation pass for those two days? And also could you recommend resort for ski in白馬村, it will be great with cheaper price.
Thank you and looking for your reply
Thanks for your question.
For transportation passes, I recommend the Snow Monkey Pass. It covers your transportation to and from the Snow Monkey Park on the Nagano Dentetsu train and bus lines, as well as entrance fee to the park. Currently, there is not a pass that also covers transportation to Hakuba.
If you want cheaper lift tickets in Hakuba, then I recommend visiting Hakuba Cortina or Hakuba Norikura ski resorts (a one-day ticket is 4,000 yen at each). I also recommend Tsugaike Kogen for its large resort area and wide beginner runs (one-day ticket: 5,100 yen).
Let me know if you have any other questions.
