  1. It is possible to travel from Narita to Hokkaido in one day. You will need to take Narita Express to Tokyo Station and transfer to Hokkaido Shinkansen to Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto.

    You can find the schedule on Hyperdia: http://www.hyperdia.com/cgi/en/search.html?dep_node=TOKYO&arv_node=SHIN-HAKODATE-HOKUTO&via_node01=&via_node02=&via_node03=&year=2020&month=09&day=06&hour=09&minute=00&search_type=0&search_way=&transtime=undefined&sort=0&max_route=5&faretype=0&airplane=off&ship=off&lmlimit=null&search_target=route&facility=reserved&sum_target=7

    Please note that the Shikansen arrives at Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto station near Hakodate city. Traveling to Sapporo takes another 3-4 hours.

    Please refer to this article for more information about Hokkaido Shinkansen – Traveling from Tokyo to Sapporo


  2. At the moment there is no reservation service for oversized luggage. There will be special luggage area on shinkansen trains with reservations starting from May 2020.

    You can find more information in this article: https://matcha-jp.com/en/7887?type=news

    We suggest using a luggage delivery service:


    Your hotel or a tourist information counter can assist you with sending your luggage. From Kyoto to Tokyo luggage is usually delivered on the next day.

  3. Kanazawa Station is not very complex to navigate. 8 minutes is enough to transfer from Ltd. Exp. Thunderbird to Shinkansen if you don't make any stops along the way. Look for the "Transfer Gate" from between local lines and the shinkansen platforms. Please refer to this article for station layout and transfer details: https://www.kanazawastation.com/kanazawa-station-map-finding-your-way/

    With a JR pass you can book seats any time after activating the pass. We recommend booking seats a few days in advance. This can be done at any JR ticket office in Japan.

    It depends on how many days you are planning to stay and how many trips on JR you are going to take.

    Can anyone please tell me the best place to get a taxi to drop me at Tokyo station to catch the Narita express? I will have a bicycle and other luggage. Thanks 

    Any taxi drop off area at Tokyo Station will be about the same distance. Narita Express departs from one of underground platforms. Be prepared to take a few escalators underground. The path to Narita Express is clearly marked from all entrances.
