  • Outside the ticket gate, there is a facility for Kanazawa souvenir shops, so you can shop before you ride the Shinkansen. There is also a underpass from the station, you can go without getting wet in the rain if a certain place. It is not long like Sapporo.

  • I had an image of Kanazawa station that is crowded with the bullet train from Tokyo, but it was good in the feeling that it was clean though it was a beautiful station and a large number of people when it came after a long time. I thought it was just one thing, but I was waiting for the time to sit on the settee, but the West exit (sea side?) It was too cold to sit all the way through the cold wind blowing through the premises.
