What to Expect
You can access the closest possible point by a car from Nagano station very smoothly.
It takes about one hour from the station, so it makes you visit the park even from Tokyo within a day.
It's in the country side, so the public transportations aren't as convinient as ones in Tokyo.
only available in January and February
You still have to walk by your feet on the wild pathway for 20-30 minuets, so please bring spare shoes.
The shoes are better to be waterproof and warm enough to walk on snow.
Rental car cost, parking, and toll fee, which are about $80-100, are all included.
