We stayed here for one night while traveling from Tokyo to Kyoto. It was readily accessible via JR train and hotel shuttle bus. We also used the shuttle bus service to get back to the hotel after walking from Magome to Nakatsugawa. The hotel was...More
Like several other reviewers, we booked for two nights either side of walking the first part of the Nakasendo way from Magome to Tsumago, and we managed to squeeze in walking from Tsumago to Nagiso station on our first afternoon, although that meant we got...More

Hotel Hanasarasa is only a short free shuttle trip from Nakutsugawa station (the bus leaves from directly in front of the station near the tourist information and says Hotel Hanasarasa in English on the side so easy to find).

This hotel is fine but we paid quite a lot of money for the night (visiting in high season) and don’t think it’s worth the rate.

We got to Magome via a local bus from Nakatsugawa Station to Magome. The bus goes along the same road as the hotel shuttle and then veers off about 300 metres from the hotel and goes on to Magome. After walking from Magome to Tsumago, we caught a local bus (which operates very regularly) to Nagiso then caught a JR train back to the station at Nakatsugawa and then the hotel shuttle back to the hotel.
Alternatively, you could catch the regular bus from Tsumago to Nakatsugawa and get off at a bus stop about 300 metres down the road from the hotel. That bus continues on the Nakatsugawa.
All very easy really and hotel staff should be able to explain all to you.
