Having decided to come to Madarao the next thing is to work out how to get there. Below we are going to provide some general information with links to more specific details depending on the option you choose. The best way to get to Madarao will be a personal preference and will depend on where you are coming from, time of year, time of day and the resources you have available to you. The main options are, by train, by bus, by shuttle, by taxi and by car.

More explicit details are contained in the relevant sections but as a generalisation:

  • if you are coming from overseas and flying in to Narita your best options are train, shuttle or taxi.
  • if you are coming from Tokyo you best option is by train or bus.
  • if you have access to a car you can use Japan's toll roads and get off at the Toyota Iiyama IC and follow Route 117 and signs to Madarao Kogen.
  • if you are transferring from other resorts you can either use a shuttle service or catch public transport such as buses and trains.
  • Whilst Madarao is a powder mecca there are lots of other things to do. So if you want a break or your companion is not so keen on the snow we can provide some alternatives.
