To get to Nozawa Onsen, most people take the bullet train from Tokyo Station to Iiyama Station, and then either arrange a private transfer or ride the Nozawa Onsen Liner bus to the village. The Nozawa Onsen Liner leaves around 10 minutes after each bullet train (except the last one), so plan accordingly. During peak seasons, it’s a good idea to buy your return Shinkansen tickets before you get to Nozawa Onsen because they can sell out.
