Getting to Joetsu Kokusai from Yuzawa

Question

Hello

Next year Japan!  Whooooo-hoooooo!

It's way off but I'm drilling down the details.

We are going to be spending a week or so in Yuzawa and hope to try a bunch of the ski places around there. Want to go to Joetsu Kokusai but not clear to us the best way to get there. Anyone who has experience able to shed light on that? It seems to have a small station on the local line but not sure if that or the bus is best.

Thanks!

Hello OllieP

Either was is ok.

The local Joetsu line trains are not regular though, I am guessing more people use the shuttle bus from Echigo Yuzawa Station.

Thanks muikabochi

Seems the bus is the main thing the ski resort itself mentions.

We spent 3 days at JK this last winter. Really liked it. Used the bus from Echigo Yuzawa Station - only takes about 20 minutes and takes you right there.

We really liked the Atema area that quad lift. Not as busy as the part in front of the hotel.
