Transfer from Thunderbird Express to Shinkansen

Recommended Posts

Travel from Kyoto to Nozawa-Onsen

Hi There, We will be travelling on Exp Thunderbird 1 from Kyoto to Kanazawa arriving on track 7 at 9.13am. Then we depart on track 14 for the Shinkansen Hakutaka 558 at 9.21am.

This gives us exactly 8minutes to find track 14. Is this achievable and would anybody have an idea of which way to run lol. Also, with the JR Pass (purchased from overseas) are we booking the seats the day before?

Thank you in advance. Annie

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.
