The Easy Way to get around Hakuba in Summer

Operating from mid July until late October in 2021, the Hakuba Shuttle is the easiest way to get around Hakuba, and with a 1 day pass only costing 800yen it is by far the cheapest option.

There are 3 routes operating that give access to almost all attractions in central Hakuba.

The routes are color coded, and transfers can be made at any bus stop that has more than one route.

Red Line

The Red Line is a express loop that runs around most major points in Hakuba, and if traveling from one park of Hakuba to another, it is the fastest way to go. It bypasses many of the lesser known places. Loops go in both directions so check the timetable to make sure you are heading in the right direction. The whole loop takes about 45 minutes so can be a good way to get orientated in Hakuba.
