Hi Koh,

Thanks for your question. I’ve included my answers below.

1. You can purchase the Tateyama Kurobe option ticket at the View Plaza center of Nagano Station. Make sure to purchase the ticket the day before your visit to Tateyama Kurobe. See details here.

2 & 3. I recommend contacting the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route directly about your baggage-forwarding questions. You can contact them by email at kaigai@alpen-route.co.jp.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi Koh,

It is possible to alight at Shinano Omachi Station and drop off your baggage there. Afterwards, take the local line bus from Shinano Omachi Station to Ogizawa Station. See the timetable here.
