which station do you want to be? There is not Minami-uonuma station. Shinkansen from Tokyo station arrives at Urasa station. Take Kanetsu highway if you drve.

What is your destination in Minamiuonuma? If it's International University of Japan, the campus is two miles from Urasa station, which is an hour and a half from Tokyo by Shinkansen (you can board at Tokyo Station or at Ueno). There's a train every hour or so.

According to the University web site there is a free bus, or a taxi will cost about US$20.

When my son did a study abroad at a college in Tokyo, he had a host family from this village. We wanted to meet them.

I think the daughter will meet us at the station. My son is not much help getting information. He doesn't pay attention to details. :)
