To Hakuba by Train

Travel by train is by far the most comfortable way of traveling. The roads tend to get crowded in winter and will often take a lot longer to get to your destination. If your coming from overseas and your going to use the trains, talk to your travel agent about a "JR rail pass" as you may save a lot of money.Be warned, once you arrive in Japan you can't buy a "JR rail pass", it must be purchased overseas.
