Dear James, Thank you for emailing. That is a very important and some guests might think it. The bus is running between "Welcome Centre" and JR Kutchan Station until 22:27 in this season 2014-15. And 12 mins walk from the station to here. Thank you again for giving us a chance to the reply. If you need any more information please feel free to ask and if there are any issues please let us know. Best regards, Ryo
