Freddy Stone replied to Bige's question in Questions & AnswersWe didn't find a bus service from one to the other. Get to Echigo Yuzawa station from either and then go out to the other.
We preferred Nagano on the whole. There was more to choose from in a more compact space as well. Nozawa-Shiga Kogen-Madarao-Myoko is great. Then you have Nagano city and we liked Obuse too.
