    Overnight bus from Kii-Katsuura

    Hello, My friends and I are trying to book the overnight highway bus from Kii-Katsuura to Tokyo, operated my Mie Kotsu. We are finding it very difficult to find an online booking site, but are also worried about trying to get tickets from a station in person since we aren't traveling close to any of the stations until the time when we will need to ticket. Any advice on how we can pre-purchase these?

    Hello kitty shinkansen

    Hello Kitty Shinkansen operates as "Kodama 730" from Hakata to Shin-Osaka. Departing Hakata at 6:40am and arriving at Shin-Osaka at 11:13am. You can buy tickets at any JR ticket office in Japan. It's a good idea to make ticket reservations as soon as you arrive in Japan because this train is very popular. You can find the details, including operation days, in this news release: https://www.westjr.co.jp/global/en/pdf/press_20180601.pdf
  12. I want to get on the Hello kitty shinkansen from Hakata station next week. What should I do?

    Hokuriku Area Pass valid 4 days

    With regard to my statement in second paragraph, I will show my un-stamped pass at manual gate in Kanazawa and in case of any any questions I will show my Kyoto-Tsuruga ticket. Sorry for mis-understanding. Again thanks for your help

    Hokuriku Area Pass valid 4 days

    Thank you for your quick reply. Yes, I will buy a regular ticket for non reserve seat for my journey from Kyoto to Tsuruga. For the remaining journey to Kanazawa, if it is asked by train conductor on board, I will show my Hokuriku Area Pass. When I arrive in Kanazawa, I think, I should use manual gate to exit and show my Hokuriku Area Pass. I don’t need to exit from machine gate and just keep the regular ticket (kyoto-tsuruga) with me. Need your help to confirm if my understanding in second paragraph is correct. Again thank for your help.

    Hokuriku Area Pass valid 4 days

    When you enter ticket gates for the first time using your pass it gets stamped. If you use a regular ticket at Kyoto station, remain on board at Tsuruga and exit at Kanazawa you may be questioned why you don't have a stamp. Keep the Kyoto to Tsuruga ticket in case of any questions. It shouldn't be a problem as long as you can show the Kyoto to Tsuruga ticket.

    Hokuriku Area Pass valid 4 days

    I am going from Kyoto station to Kanazawa station I owned Hokuriku Area Pass valid for “non reserve seat” , thunderbird train and starting from Tsuruga until Kanazawa only instead of starting from Kyoto station. Therefore I need to buy a ticket at Kyoto Station for my journey from Kyoto to Tsuruga. I will use my ticket (kyoto-tsuruga) to enter the gate at kyoto station and continue with the same train (unreserved seat) until Kanazawa. When I arrive at Kanazawa, I will use my Hokuriku Area Pass to exit the gate. My question is: can I stay in the same train without “exit the gate at Tsuruga and enter again using my pass” to continue my journey to Kanazawa? Appreciate your help
  17. Thank you very much Michael. Not only did you answer my question, but your use of the term 東京山手線内 led me to JR's 旅客営業規則 (Passenger Sales Regulations). I now also understand why the 山 designation matters. Very glad to have found this forum and hope I can contribute in the future. Xia

    Meaning of "山区" on JR East station signs (Tokyo)

    Hello there, Yes, you are right that the 区 designates a station that is a destination or starting point within the 23 special wards of Tokyo. The 山 designates any station within the Yamanote Line area (東京山手線内). Of course Tokyo Station is also on the Yamanote Line as well as on the Chuo Line. However, there are also Chuo Line stations that are not on the Yamanote Line itself, but because they are within the Yamanote loop they are also included in this area. I hope that helps. Very best wishes, Michael
  19. Hello, I've always been curious about the "山区" often seen in the upper right of station signs. I understand the the 区 means the station is within the 23 special wards of Tokyo. I've heard the 山 means it's on the Yamanote line, but am a little skeptical. I believe the color of the box in the middle of the green stripe defines the line. Also, the attached image has the "山区" but is for the Chuo line. Thank you for any assistance.
