Hello,

Thanks for answering so quickly. I have another question.

Are there buses running from Shirahone Onsen to Shin-Hotaka in the winter of December 2017? And, on the way back are there buses going from Shin-Hotaka back to Matsumoto? Where can I find their time tables?

I would like to go to the Shin-Hotaka ropeway in December 2017 after Shirahone Onsen?

Thanks.


Note of webmaster: Hi Anukal,

There are buses that will take you from Shirahone Onsen to Shin-Hotaka and back to Matsumoto, but you will need to transfer.

Shirahone Onsen -->Shinhotaka Ropeway
Step 1: From Shirahone Onsen, take the bus bound for Matsumoto and get off at Oyako-daki (K17). Two buses leave from Shirahone Onsen: the 10:05 a.m. and the 15:45 p.m. (3:45 p.m.) The timetable is available here (Japanese only) http://www.alpico.co.jp/access/kamikochi/shirahone/

Step 2: From Oyako-daki, take the express bus bound for Takayama and Shinhotaka. Get off at Hirayu-Onsen (the last stop).
The timetable is available here (in English and Japanese). http://www.alpico.co.jp/access/express/matsumoto_takayama/ Please be aware that while two buses (shown in yellow) appear to be running to the Shinhotaka Ropeway stop, they are NOT in service during the winter.

Step 3: From Hirayu-Onsen, take the Nohi Bus to the Shinhotaka Ropeway. The timetable is available here (in English). https://www.nouhibus.co.jp/route_bus/shinhotaka-line-en/

Shinhotaka Ropeway -->Matsumoto

Step 1: From the Shinhotaka Ropeway stop, take the Nohi Bus back to Hirayu-Onsen.

Step2: Take the express bus from Hirayu-Onsen to Matsmoto Bus Terminal
The timetable is available here http://www.alpico.co.jp/access/express/matsumoto_takayama/.

Hope this helps!
