Zao Getting Around

Public transport options are somewhat limited in Zao, but the relatively small size of the resort means that it’s not too much of a hassle. There are some ryokans and hotels that will offer lifts around and shuttle services to and from the slopes, and you should take them up on the offer while you can. The town itself is quite small though, and getting from your ryokan to a restaurant and back on foot won’t be an issue. If you’re worried about getting around on foot, take a look at the resort map and find something that will suit your needs.
