Hi, I\’m planning to stay in Lake Nojiri for 2 nights and will be arriving at narita international around 9am. Since i don\’t have much time what is the best mode of transport with the shortest time? take a train then rent a car or just drive from narita?
Taking the Hokuriku Shinkansen to Nagano Station (80 to 90 minutes) then renting a car and driving to Lake Nojiri (45 minutes) would be the fastest way to travel. See our recent blog post on renting a car in Nagano for more information on nearby rental locations.
I hope that helps!
