Naeba is 21km from the Yuzawa IC and 33km from the Tsukiyono IC of the Kanetsu Expressway - though people coming from the Tokyo region will usually get off at Tsukiyono. The drive from Tsukiyono IC usually takes about 50 minutes.
The resort is about 21km from the main Echigo Yuzawa Station (JR Joetsu line and JR Joetsu Shinkansen line) and the journey to Naeba from there by bus takes about 50 minutes.
A shuttle bus is available between the Mitsumata Station and Tashiro Station of Kagura and the Naeba Prince Hotel (free if you have an 'all Mt Naeba' lift ticket; otherwise 300 yen adults, 150 yen children).
