Take Nagano shinkansen back to Tokyo, change into Tokaido Shinkansen to Nagoya and take Limited Express Hida to Takayama. It takes 6hrs 30 min.

Unless you use a JR pass, I would recommend you to travel via Nagano and Matsumoto.

a) Via Nagano and Matsumoto

2) Karuizawa 10:53-Shinkansen Asama-11:17 Nagano 12:00-limited express Shinano-12:52 Matsumoto 13:50-bus-16:10 Takayama

3) Karuizawa 15:16-Shinkansen Asama-15:48 Nagano 16:00-limited express Shinano-16:52 Matsumoto 17:10-bus-19:30 Takayama

Karuizawa to Matsumoto by JR in an unreserved seat; 4,570 yen, reserved seat; 5,340 yen
Matsumoto to Takayama by bus: 3,100 yen
Total: 7,670 yen or 8,440 yen

b) Via Tokyo and Nagoya:
