Nagaden Local Bus Timetable

Nagaden Local Bus Timetable

Nagaden operates numerous local bus services in and around Nagano City including to the Jigokudani Monkey Park. The following page provides the timetable for those services.

Operating from Yudanaka Station, two local bus lines stop at the monkey park: the Kanbayashi Line and Shiga Kogen Line. Both services head to the monkey park – taking 8 to 15-miuntes (depending on which bus you use), before following very different routes. The Kanbayshi Line heads away from the mountains, therefore visitors wanting to head to Shiga Kogen must takes the Shiga Kogen Line.

 

All local buses to and from the monkey park cost (one-way): JPY310 per adult / JPY160 per child.
