Iiyama is located Northwest of Tokyo in the Nagano Prefecture and accessible directly from Tokyo. Travel time by car is approximately 4 hours and 15 minutes.

There are two main popular ways to get to Madarao Kogen area from Tokyo.

Take the Kanetsu Expressway from Nerima IC to Fujioka JCT, and then turn onto the Joshinetsu Expressway and head to the Toyota Iiyama IC exit. From the Toyota Iiyama IC exit traffic lights, head straight ahead on Prefecture Road 96, and after about 5km turn right to go up to Madarao Kogen, which is signposted.

Alternatively, take the Kanetsu Expressway from Nerima IC and continue under the Tanigawadake mountain range into Niigata Prefecture, exiting at the Shiozawa Ishiuchi IC. After exiting the toll booth at Shiozawa Ishiuchi IC, turn right and continue for 1km until reaching the Route 17 traffic lights. Turn left onto Route 17 and after about 600m turn right again onto Route 353 to head towards Tsunan and Nozawa Onsen. After about 18km turn left onto Route 117. After around 43km on Route 117, there is a sign to turn right for Madarao Kogen. From there, follow the signs up to the ski resorts. The journey from Shiozawa Ishiuchi IC to Madarao Kogen is around 73km.

Snow tires & Snow chains.

 

If you will be driving by car to Maadarao and the surrounding areas during the winter ski season we highly recommend a vehicle with 4WD and studless snow tires for best performance driving in the changing winter conditions.

Alternatively, a vehicle with 4WD and metal snow chains is advisable. Rubber snow chains have poor performance and traction on the roads, can become difficult to travel even short distances.

At the very least metal snow chains are a necessity for traveling around Madarao and the local areas from mid-December to the end of the season.
