Shuttle buses run between Hakuba Station and the ski resort and take less than 10 minutes. Buses are also available from Nagano Station (Nagano Shinkasen line) which is about 45km away and that journey takes about 60 minute.
The nearest expressway exit is the Nagano IC on the Joshinetsu Expressway (47km away, 60 minutes). The other popular expressway exit from the south is the Azumino IC exit of the Nagano Expressway (48km, 60 minutes). Please note that Azumino IC used to be called Toyoshina IC - it was renamed in October 2012. To the north the Itoigawa IC on the Hokuriku Expressway is about 52km away from Happo.
Parking options range from free to 1000 yen for the day.
