Tokyo airport to Nagano by train:
There are two train lines out of Narita Airport. The JR company lines take you right into Tokyo. It can be quicker to use the Keisei Skyliner service to Ueno and pick up the JR Shinkansen from there.
This is a more direct route, but involves buying two lots of tickets and changing stations at Ueno (a 5 minute walk). A great website to see times for trains in Japan is http://www.hyperdia.com/. Highly recommended as it shows transfer walking times, prices etc too.
Use Shinkansen train (about 90 minutes journey time, 2-3 trains per hour, 8200 Yen for a non-reserved seat, seat reservation costs around 700 Yen)
Nagano to Hasuike stop (close to the Lake Hotel): Bus (70 min, 1 run /hr, 1700 JPY)
