Until last year, the number of flights was 4 round trips a day, but this year the number of flights has been reduced to 2 round trips a day.The reason is that inbound foreign customers cannot be expected due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection.The Keinan Bus says, “Both the upper and lower routes have good connections to the Hokuriku Shinkansen (toward Tokyo), so skiers and tourists visiting from outside the prefecture should definitely use it.”
