Hi Guys,

Im trying to find a way to get my husband daughter and I to nozawa onsen for the fire festival on the 15th of Jan from myoko, is there any chance I will find a bus doing transfers to and from once i get there? I have looked online however it seems there are only yours from hukabua.

any info would be great thanks!

The Myoko tourist office can probably help if you dont have a car, otherwise have a look at chuo taxi or ixsm travel. both provide transport to the resorts in niigata and nagano, hope this helps.

Or ask your accommodation.
The festival is popular, there will be lots of people going there.

If you get to madarao the day before, you can book the bus for around 2pm which will take you there. Your accommodation at myoko might be a little problematic about taking you all the way to nozawa, but madarao might be a little easier for them.

We have booked the transport from Myoko to Nozawa with IXSM travel...............pick up at Resort inn ALP deliver to Nozawa 1 hour duration.
Find IXSM travel online and look for contact No.............we know they have office in Nozawa.

Cheers

I know a few people who have been messed around seriously by IXSM.
I would not recommend them, in fact the opposite.

Well, as I live in the area and drive myself around in my car, I don't use such services.
So I really don't know actually.

But I said I would ask my accommodation. They may be riding over their mini bus themselves.
Also, as ippy said, Madarao as a mid point might be an idea.
