Hakuba, Japan ♥

Hakuba is located only 4 hours from Tokyo and stands out as one of Japan’s top winter resort areas, offering some of the best winter sports action in Japan. Hakuba was also the host of the 1998 Nagano winter Olympics and offers nine ski resorts.

Hakuba Valley consists of 11 ski resorts with great ski school facilities for beginners and intermediates. I was a completely beginner and I had fun falling every two minutes, but advanced skiers and snowboarders won’t be disappointed either.

You will be surprised how many Australians live and work in Hakuba, you will see some locals in Hakuba as well but mainly Aussies have been living in Hakuba for the past few years. Surprisingly, there are plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from, but I would recommend you to make reservations before you showing up to any restaurant.

 

How to get there?

We got there by train from Tokyo train station, but there are many ways to get there depending on where you are. Please see below how we did it.

From Tokyo Station to Nagano

The Tokyo train station is a tourist destination in itself, with the fascinating rush of people bustling about, the many food options to choose from. The Nagano bullet train (Asama Shinkansen) departs Tokyo Station regularly throughout the day , and the super speedy trip (at over 200kph) takes only 90 minutes. At Tokyo train station, you have to swap from the local train station to the Shinkansen train station, a walk of about 150 metres. This station isn’t quite as chaotic as Tokyo and offers the advantage of a faster trip time.

From Nagano Station to Hakuba

There are various options to get from Nagano to Hakuba which all take about one hour:

  • Alpico buses from Nagano to Hakuba run every hour from 8:20am to 7:40pm (Friday night 9.00pm) and cost about ¥1,500 one way (children ¥700). Buses depart from the East (Higashi) exit of Nagano Station from bus stop 6. Most people use this option.
  • You can catch a local train to the Hakuba Station ( we decided to catch a local train)

From Hakuba Bus Terminal to your Accommodation

If you are coming to Hakuba via bus for part or all of the trip, your bus is likely to end up at the Happo Information Center. There is not much accommodation within walking distance of the bus terminal, so it’s likely you’ll need onward transport. The staff in the centre speak English so they’ll be able to help you with this.

We spent 5 days in Hakuba and found it enough time to enjoy the beautiful resorts and a little bit of the night life, but there are some people who spend over a month there. it really depends on how much time you want to spend in Hakuba. We decided to spread our holidays into 4 cities in order for us to see different sides of Japan.

It was one of the best experiences in my life!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions at all. You can contact me via facebook or instagram.

Much Love, Bianca

 

Hakuba fica a 4 horas de Tóquio e possui um dos melhores locais de resorts de inverno do Japão, oferecendo também o melhor local para esportes de inverno do país. A região de Hakuba sediou os jogos Olímpicos de inverno de 1998 em Nagano e oferece nove resorts de esqui.

O Vale do Hakuba tem 11 resorts de esqui com as melhores escolas para iniciantes e níveis intermediários. Eu era uma iniciante nata e eu me diverti o tempo todo, mas esquiadores e snowboarders de nível avançado não vão de arrepender também.

Você vai se surpreender com a quantidade australianos que vivem e trabalham em Hakuba. Você verá alguns nativos em Hakuba lá mas muitos australianos tem ido viver em Hakuba. Surpreendentemente, há muitos restaurantes e bares para escolher, mas eu recomendaria a você fazer reservas antes de ir a qualquer restaurante.

Como chegar lá?

Nós chegamos lá por trem da estação de trem de Tóquio, mas tem diversas maneiras de ir até lá dependendo de onde você está. Veja abaixo como nós fizemos.

 

Da Estação de Tóquio a Nagano

A estação de trem de Tóquio é um destino turístico em si, com a fascinante movimentação de pessoas buscando muitas opções de comidas. O trem-bala de Nagano (Asama Shinkansen) sai da Estação de Tóquio durante todo o dia e é uma viagem muito rápida (aproximadamente 200 km/h) e demora somente 1hora e 30 minutos. Na estação de trem de Tóquio você deve trocar de trem e pagar outro para a estação de Shinkansen, aproximadamente 150 metros caminhando. Essa estação não é tão caótica quanto a de Tóquio e tem a vantagem de ter um tempo de viagem mais rápido.
Da Estação de Nagano até Hakuba
Há várias opções para ir de Nagano a Hakuba que leva cerca de uma hora:

  • Os ônibus Alpico saem de Nagano a Hakuba toda hora das 8:20 às 19:40 (21:00 nas sextas à noite) e custam ¥1,500 a ida (crianças ¥700). Os ônibus partem da saída leste da estação de Nagano da parada de ônibus 6. Muitas pessoas utilizam essa opção.
  • Você pegar o trem local para a Estação Hakuba (nós decidimos pegar o trem local)

Do terminal de ônibus de Hakuba para sua hospedagem
Se você estiver indo pra Hakuba de ônibus,seu ônibus chegará no Centro de Informação Happo. Não tem muitos locais para hospedagem próximo do terminal de ônibus, por isso é provável que você precise de transporte. Os funcionários do centro falam inglês, então eles irão te ajudar caso precise.

Nós ficamos cinco dias em Hakuba e tivemos tempo suficiente para aproveitar os lindos resorts e também a vida noturna, porém tem pessoas que ficam lá um mês. Depende de quanto tempo você quer ficar em Hakuba. Nós decidimos passar nossas férias em quatro cidades para conhecermos os diferentes lados do Japão.

Foi uma das melhores experiências da minha vida!

Sinta-se à vontade de me contatar com quaisquer dúvidas. Você pode falar comigo pelo Facebook ou Instagram.

Com carinho, Bianca

Thank you for sharing your ideas.
