One of the easiest ways of getting to Chalet Myoko is to use the Japanese train system.

From there it is a short taxi ride to Chalet Myoko. But if you let us know which train you are on we will pick you up from the station.

We recommend that you familiarise yourself with HyperDia and use one of the options suggested there.

Hyperdia will tell you train times, what the fare will be, allows reasonable times when you change trains and also tell you shich platform your train will be on. When you are not quite sure which train to catch having the platform number is very re-assuring.

From Narita there are 2 choices.

Catch the JR N'ex to Tokyo and change there to the Asahi Shinkansen to Nagano.

Alternatively you can catch one of the Keisei trains to Ueno and change to the Asahi Shinkensen there.

At Nagano you change to the local train going to Myoko Kogen and takes about 45 mnutes from Nagano. The train terminates at Myoko Kogen and is the stop after Kurohime.

We think changing trains at Ueno is easier than changing at Tokyo even though you are changing train companies. This means that  you need to buy 2 different tickets and you need to change from the Keisei Ueno station to the JR Ueno station. But the 2 stations are very close and it is far less confusing than trying to find you way around Tokyo station.

However if you want to take advantage of any JR East pass you should catch the N'Ex to Tokyo and change there.
