Kusatsu Onsen bus 2023/4/30 11:26

I am planning on doing a day trip from Nagano to Kusatsu Onsen.

I've already looked at the bus timetable for getting from Kusatsu Onsen to Naganohara-Kusatsuguchi Station.
I am looking at taking the 19:50pm bus from Kusatsu Onsen to NK Station.
The bus is ought to arrive at the station at 20:15pm This will allow me to catch the 20:33 train as I begin my journey back to Nagano.

My one concern, as this will be the last bus of the day and the last train that I can catch on my way back to Nagano. Is whether there could potentially be any delays during the bus journey?
It will be late January, and obviously, I wouldn't wish to miss my train. Which is why I've also been considering getting the 18:30 bus.

Thank you in advance for your help!

If the road is not closed (e.g., by heavy snow) there should not be problem catching the last bus/train. But if there is heavy snow, you should know about it when you go to the Onsen.

I once made a trip between Nagano city and Kusatsu Onsen, thinking it would be a short trip due to geographic proximity of the two. Wrong! There is a bus from Kusatsu Onsen to Karuizawa, from where you can catch a Shinkansen to Nagano, but the last of that bus leaves even earlier (15:50?). Once you hop on the Shinkansen, from either Takasaki or Karuizawa, it will be a short ride to Nagano.
