Niseko to Noboribetsu in winer

Hi, my family of 5 will be travelling from Hilton Niseko to Takinoya ryokan in Noboribetsu in December. I found the following JR route :-

1) Niseko (Kutchan) take local train to Oshamanbe.

2) Oshamanbe take super Hokuto train to Noboribetsu.

3) Noboribetsu take local bus to Takinoya ryokan

Total travel time approximately 3.5 to 4 hrs.

Please advise if there is any other better route eg direct bus/taxi from Niseko to Noboribetsu. Appreciate your help in quoting prices if you know !!

Yes, Niseko to Noboribetsu isn't so far by car - and the road passes thru Lake toya too, which is beautiful in snow.

There are various taxi/mini van/jumbo taxi rental companies in Niseko - for a group of 5 with luggage it would be a good idea.

Here are the links:




Contact these companies to find out their rates.
