HOW TO GET TO KANAZAWA BY TRAIN FROM KANSAI AIRPORT

My friend said it is better to go directly to Kanazawa when I arrive Kansai Airport at 7 am.

1) Which is the fastest and economical train route to reach Kanazawa?
2) I will stay in Kanazawa for 3 nights and will visit Shirawago. . What pass do I need to buy?
2) From Kanazawa, I will travel to Osaka and stay 5 nights there. During my stay in Osaka, I will be going to Kyoto and Kobe. What pass do I need to buy?
3) Due to my big luggage, I want to stay nearest to the train station in Osaka where I can have easy access to Kyoto/Kobe. Please recommend the train station which is the most convenient so that I can book my condo stay.
4) Any other pass that I need to buy?

Hi there,

1.) The fastest route is to take the Haruka Express from Kansai Airport to Kyoto/Osaka and from there use the Thunderbird express to Kanazawa.

2.) I suggest buying normal tickets for this route or look at some of the Hokuriku passes.

3.) Both Kyoto, Osaka and Sannomiya (in Kobe) are nice and easy accible stations.

4.) Not that I can think of.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
