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 !!
