Hirafu alpine resort

Hi we are a family of 4 with 2 young kids and are planning to stay at the Hirafu Alpine resort in Kutchan. What is the best and most painless way of getting there from Toky? My youngest is 5 so long bus rides are out.

There are express trains from Chitose and from Sapporo to Kutchan...although you are probably staying in the village of HIrafus which is 5 km from Kutchan Town, and it has its own station.

Or there are buses from Chitose Airport - direct to HIrafu. Takes just over 2 hours depdning on the weather.

Bus is more convenient.

You come through arrivals and the bus stops are right outside, you can make reservations before.

Or look at Skybus, it is a local company that does Airport/Niseko cars/mini bus.
