GETTING TO/FROM THE RACE


Shinetsu Kougen is a beautiful area in Japan, however it's a bit far from all the major international airports. When planning your trip, you should plan to take at least 3 hours to get from the airport to Iiyama train station.

After landing in Narita Airport (or Haneda Airport),  take a bus or train into Tokyo (approximately 1 hour). From Tokyo, take a high speed Shinkansen (bullet train) to Iiyama station (approximately 1 hour 40 minutes). 

You can purchase JR train tickets at stations.

Please see instructions written in English on this website.
