Dear Sir/Mdm, we will be in tokyo in january 2018 and interested to visit snow monkey park and shiba highland in the same day, please advise the local transport. Can we take the express bus nagaden to snow monkey park, after visit, take the same bus to shiga hihgland ski area?? as I understand that nageden bus only allow drop off from route to Shiga and only pickup from shiga back to nagano station. please advise
There are multiple buses which travel to the Snow Monkey Park and Shigakogen. The bus you mention is the express bus that runs from Nagano/Iiyama Stations to Shiga, and that one only offers pick-up/drop-off at certain stops. However, there is also a local Shigakogen bus which runs from Yudanaka Station to the Snow Monkey park and Shigakogen. Take the express bus from Nagano to the Snow Monkey Park, then the local bus from the park to Shigakogen.
See our section for Shigakogen buses in our bus timetables section (currently displaying summer schedules, check back in late November for winter). The first two buses are the local lines and the last bus is the express line.
I hope that answers your question!
