Please also be informed of the following:

Hotel bookings:
Please book your own hotel! We have gathered a list of hotels in Hakuba. Please find HERE for the Hotel list. Due to an upturn in the ski industry and interest from tourists, the weekends are usually well booked. Therefore, please book early!

Transport to the location:
Please choose your own modes of transport. The following public transport are working well in our experience:

  • Shinkansen to Nagano Station, then switch to Highway Bus, approx. 2 ½ to 3 hours
  • Highway buses from Nagano station depart every hour. Take the East Exit at Nagano station and get on Hakuba bound buses at bus stop no. 6.
    The Bus stop in Happo-one, Hakuba, is about 5min walk to the Tokyu Hotel where the award party is held.
  • Super Azusa Chuo limited express train directly to Hakuba station, approx. 4 hours
    After arrival at Hakuba station you best take a taxi to your hotel or ask the hotel how to go there (approx. 10min by car)
  • Highway Bus from Shinjuku to Happo-one, approx. 4,5 hours
    Cost conscious solution with approx. JPY 9,000 go and return

Ski equipment:
If you have no ski equipment, no worries! There are plenty of rental shops in Hakuba. We recommend the Head Sports Station (

We are looking forward to seeing many of you on the slopes of Hakuba!
