Think you may have misunderstood me. We have put our ski/board bags in the trunk of a Nagaden bus on our way Shiga Kogan, but the information on the bus pass site says that Nagaden bus Co. does not accept ski bags?
I know almost nothing on Nagaden Bus Co. But, it seems they have 4 different kinds of buses. 1:Highway bus (Between Tokyo and Nagano station, etc). 2: Express / Resort Direct Bus (it's running between Nagano station and ski resorts such as Shiga Kogen and Nozawa Onsen). 3:Route bus. 4:Charter bus.
Japan Bus Pass is basically for long distance / highway bus. So, I guess you can use Nagaden Bus between Tokyo and Nagano Sta by use of Japan Bus Pass, however, I guess you'll need to pay Nagaden about 1,000 Yen for the shuttle bus between Nagano station and Shiga Kogen. So, the buses of Nagaden between Nagano station and ski resorts accept ski bags, but their highway bus between Tokyo and Nagano might not accept ski bags?. I don't know. They have an English website, so you can ask
You can choose another company between Tokyo and Nagano that accept ski bags by use of Japan Bus Pass (I mean, there are some other bus companies that have shuttle buses between Tokyo / Narita and Nagano).
