I've never pre booked it, just arrived and bought a ticket for the next available train. We usually go from Ueno too.
I don’t bother with pre booking. Holiday mood you might not wake up in time. Worse if you’re with a friend who suggest just “one glass” of beer the night before.I book all my trips through Mountain Watch and the last few have always been bus connections but yr right, I should've look at the Shinkansen, the mate I'm meeting at Myoko is going a day early and going by train.
You never know, I might just end up on it anyway. I was pretty comfortable on the JR network but haven't done much at all with the high speed.
Is the Shinkansen easy to arrange on the day if I need to?
I was looking at getting to Ueno and jumping on from there either via mono rail and/or JR but I'd need to ticket on the day if the bus doesn't go.
Yeah I'm waiting for my connection from Singapore and just saw my Nagano Snow Shuttle isn't leaving until 7pm tomorrow, was supposed to be 7am. I'm thinking about jumping on the Shinkansen to Nagano, does anyone know if that'll be running? I just don't want to get caught chasing my tail tomorrow.
Mate Ive literally just arrived in Nagano 10min ago via Shinkansen, so yes, atm anyway
Shit… Bus or taxi then. it’s a bit odd for accommodation not being able to help out. It’s a bit out of character… wouldn’t book there again unless they have a good reasonWhat's the best way for me to get to Akakura from Myoko Kogen? I can't seem to reach my accomm for a pickup
