We can provide you with pick-up and drop-off service between the hours of 9:00AM and 20:00PM, to the local train station – Echigo Yuzawa. Traveling to Asahikan by train from Tokyo is very easy. It takes approximately 90 minutes from Tokyo station, to reach Echigo-Yuzawa, and a short 10 minute transfer to Asahikan. Of course, we offer this service to our guests, free of charge. At times when your arrival is overlapping with other guests transfer, we may suggest using the Yuzawa-Park Ski Resort shuttle bus (timetable here), which is located approximately 100m from our door!
Resort Drop Off
For those who wish to experience some of the other resorts in the area, we are more than happy to drop you off at any resort within the area. We will then make arrangements with you, to pick you up again in the afternoon, after your day on the mountain. Please note that this service is free of charge to any of the resorts within reasonably close proximity to Asahikan, however for resorts outside of the area, we charge a 1,000 yen fee. The fee is for round trip and is for the vehicle, not per person. We thank you for your understanding of this charge.
