There is a car hire place in Hakuba but it may be a alot more expensive than hiring from one of the more mainstream places at Nagano. If it does not turn up in a google search let me know and I will search up a link for you.That cost is much better... was wondering about car size last night, but was mainly driven by car size / logistics. Where to pick up car (Nagano - or is there something in Hakuba?). If Nagano, Do we need to do two lots of Takkyubin? ie Ski gear on arrival, and then a bag or two of other stuff from travelling two weeks before we get to Hakuba. As we are leaving direct from Hakuba, no chance to Takkyubin, so will probably need to arrange a day to take a car back to Nagano on one day. See if we can arrange some other activities around that.
